Every second of the three days spanning the Passion and Death of the Lord holds eternal significance. This means that every second as we wait, seemingly powerless on this Holy Saturday, a mystical sacrificial waiting is taking place. Where there is prayerful sacrifice offered through Him in our pain and sorrow as we wait for His rising from the dead, God transforms each of our sacrifices into Sacrament. Our sacrificial and silent waiting for Him throughout Holy Saturday therefore becomes a sacramental waiting which we may offer for the souls of many.
In this way, God enters our powerlessness and makes it Holy.
