Today is holy Tuesday. here is what it means
Today is a Holy Tuesday. In Christianity, Holy Tuesday is the last Tuesday prior to Easter Sunday; it is the third day of Holy Week after Palm Sunday and Holy Monday. Depending on the denomination, this day may or may not be celebrated at all. Those that do observe Holy Tuesday, such as Eastern Orthodox churches, typically mark it with readings of particular passages of Scriptures and the singing of relevant hymns.
The Bishop North Kigezi Diocese, Rt. Rev. Benon Magezi, tells Croozefm the meaning of Holy Tuesday. He says that according to a common interpretation of the Bible, Holy Tuesday is when Jesus taught and preached to people in Jerusalem on his coming back and end comings on Mount Olives.
He adds that on that day, Jesus also confronted spiritual leaders in Jerusalem calling them hypocrites and blind that they were like tombs with dead bodies and called on them to accept him as their savior.
As Christians, therefore, commemorate this day, Bishop Magezi asks Christians to accept Jesus Christ in their lives in preparation for his second coming.
