Many Christians were observing Holy Saturday in preparation of Easter Sunday over the weekend.As part of those preparations, Francis Cardinal George blessed Easter baskets and other Easter meal food items Saturday.

The mass was at St. Turibius Parrish on the South Side.

Holy Saturday marks the end of Holy Week and the Lenten season. It commemorates Jesus lying in the tomb until his resurrection on Easter morning.
