As Surely as the Sun Rises ...

Wishing you a beautiful and meaningful Holy Week filled with God's Glory
in the Beauty of Nature ... and the Hope and Promises of Easter and Spring.

The Days of Holy Week

Holy Monday was when Jesus overturned the tables of the money changers, saying to them: "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer'; But you make it a den of robbers." [Matthew: 21:13]

Holy Tuesday of Holy Week is the day when the incident between Jesus and Pharisees is thought to have taken place. This was when the churchmen tried to trap Jesus into making a blasphemous, or, anti-God remark. This day is also significant as the day Jesus discoursed to his disciples on the Mount of Olives about the destruction of Jerusalem and the signs of the last day.

Spy Wednesday: The day Judas betrayed Jesus.

Maundy Thursday: The day of the Last Supper. In the words of Matthew: Jesus took bread, and blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is my body." And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you; for this is my blood of covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."

Good Friday: The Crucifixion

Holy Saturday commemorates the day Jesus Christ's body lay in the tomb.

Easter Sunday: The day of the Resurrection.
