Holy Tuesday

Holy Tuesday takes place on Tuesday of Holy Week, after Palm Sunday and Holy Monday, and five days before Easter. Denominations celebrate it differently and with distinct readings, and some denominations don't celebrate it at all. In the Biblical account of the week, a few things are mentioned as having happened on the day. It is viewed as the day that Jesus was given challenges by Pharisees and Sadducees on issues related to marriage in heaven, where his authority came from, and paying taxes to Caesar. It is also seen as the day when Jesus spoke of his "eight woes" of the Pharisees and commented on the widow's donation.

How to Observe Holy Tuesday

The day could be observed by reading scriptural texted designated for the day, such as those used by the Roman Catholic Church, the Revised Common Lectionary—which is used by the Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist, Old Catholic, and Reformed churches—or the Eastern Orthodox churches.
