Cardinal Timothy Dolan observed Holy Saturday with a special blessing in the East Village.

The cardinal visited the 140-year-old Saint Stanislaus Church to take part in a Holy Saturday tradition.

The annual blessing of food for Easter Sunday breakfast is a reminder of the importance of the holiday to Christians, whose belief that Christ rose from the dead after being crucified forms the basis of the Christian faith.

"On this Holy Saturday, we ask that you give us faith to relive your presence among us during our Easter meals; on the Easter day of your victory that we might rejoice in your life and resurrection," Dolan told those assembled.

Dolan was scheduled to celebrate the Easter Vigil Mass at St Patrick's Cathedral on Saturday night.

Holy Week ends Sunday the Easter Sunday celebration, which is the holiest day on the Christian calendar.
