04/11/20 - NNHS Newsletter - Holy Saturday
“I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath. He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light. Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day. My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones. He hath builded against me, and compassed me with gall and travail. He hath set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old. He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy. Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer. He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked.”
- Lamentations 3: 1-9 (KJV)
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We're getting better at celebrating this day here together every year...
BONUS - Palestrina's Lamentations
Many Christians in the United States observe Holy Saturday, which falls between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. It commemorates the day when Jesus Christ lay in the tomb after his death, according to the Christian bible. It is also known as Easter Eve and is the last day of Lent.

('57) of MD":
Thank you, Norm,
we're still praying!
Thank you for the update. Give Harry our love!
A full day in
service to Brother Harry. His release from hospital was an ordeal due to
delays I won’t specify. I had to get a jump start on the Murano. Harry’s
Xray showed an abscess - like he needs that too, a tooth extraction
scheduled Monday. Dr. Harvey Levy’s team with Dr. Patel was marvelous,
gentle, understanding. Meds were a fiscal challenge, got him home,
Nicholas my chauffeur, lived with the delays, I got Harry situated, bed
and room squared away, meds taken and tuna on Italian bread with
pickles, sent him to sleep. Will see him in the morning unless something
WOW! Thank you, Norm, we're still praying! Thank you for the update. Give Harry our love!
