Handmade Byzantine Icon of Myrrh Bearers at the Tomb.
The Myrrh Bearers devotedly followed Jesus Christ in his sermons, and later, at his burial, they were with him again, anointing his body with myrrh. They were the first to be informed by the Angel of the Lord about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and they announced the news to his disciples.
The known seven Myrrh Bearers were Mary Magdalene, Salome, Joanna (wife of Chuza), Mary and Martha (sisters of Lazarus), Mary (wife of Clopas), and Sossana.
Our Church honors the memory of the Myrrh Bearing Women on the second or third Sunday following Pascha, which is called the Sunday of the Myrrh Bearers.
Kontakion for the Sunday of the Myrrhbearers
When You did cry, Rejoice, unto the Myrrh-bearers, You did make the lamentation of Eve the first mother to cease by Your Resurrection, O Christ God. And You did bid Your Apostles to preach: The Savior is risen from the grave.
