Saturday of the souls
It is celebrated 48 days after Holy Easter
The Saturday before Pentecost Sunday is called – “Saturday of Souls” or Psycho Saturday. It is the second of the two Psychosabbaths of the year (the first takes place on the Saturday before Shrove Tuesday).
The reason our Church instituted it, even though every Saturday is dedicated to those who have fallen asleep, is the following: Because many at times died young or in the wilderness or at sea or on the mountains and slopes or even some, due to poverty, were not claimed of the ordered commemorations, “the divine Fathers, acting in a philanthropic manner, instituted this commemoration in favor of all the Christians who have reverently passed away through the ages”.
