Today is Holy Wednesday, the day Judas betrayed Jesus Christ.
Holy Wednesday is the day of the last s
upper of the Son of God with the apostles, when Jesus said one of them will betray him.
On the day of the Holy and Great Wednesday, Judas went to Judah counseled and arranged the betrayal of Christ for thirty pieces of silver.

Each Gospel describes the role that Judas plays in the Passion. Jesus conducts the Last Supper with his disciples, prays in Gethsemane, and is arrested by soldiers led by Judas. In the Synoptic Gospels beginning with Mark (the earliest Gospel, dating to around 70 C.E.), Judas leads the soldiers and exclaims: “The one I will kiss is the man; arrest him and lead him away under guard” (Mark 14:44). Thus, the earliest Gospel establishes the lasting symbol of the Judas kiss. Matthew also includes the kiss of Judas in the arrest sequence; however, Luke depicts Jesus questioning Judas: “Is it with a kiss that you are betraying the Son of Man?” (Luke 22:48). And John avoids the kiss altogether, focusing instead on the villainy of Judas’s treason. 

Since that day, believers bow during prayer.

It's a custom to pick geranium on this day, mostly by children, and on Holy Friday should be given to close people
for health.
