Catholic Activity: Jesse Tree, Day 14 - Jonah
And Jonah began to enter into the city after one day's journey: and he cried and said: Yet forty days and Ninive shall be destroyed. And the men of Ninive believed in God: and they proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth from the greatest to the least.
As Jonah remained in the whale for three days, so Christ remained three days in the earth after His death.
