Throughout the catholic world, Holy Saturday is traditionally a day of quiet waiting, between the death of Jesus and his resurrection on Easter Sunday.
In Rome, as elsewhere, there are no religious ceremonies during the day until the Easter vigil, that begins not long after sunset.
In saint Peter basilica the pope presides this long ceremony during which God’s promises to his people are read.. An highlight is the baptism of adults who have been preparing to become members of the church at Easter.
