Thursday, Friday, Saturday -- The Three Days of Darkness!
Why will the 3 Days of Darkness occur on a Thursday, Friday, and Saturday?
The answer is spiritual:
Thursday is the day dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament, which, without a Papal Mandate, gives us no graces at all.
Friday is the day dedicated to the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in order to open Heaven to us.
Saturday is the day dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and our Good Mother.
Our Holy Mother will protect us under her mantle, and the sun will reappear on this day.
