myrrh011 MAY 4: TYPIKA – 4:00 PM; MAY 5: TYPIKA –

The Gospel Reading is Mark 15: 43-16 which describes how the women disciples of our Lord came to the tomb to anoint his body with myrrh-oils but found the tomb empty. As the woman wondered what this meant, angels appeared proclaiming that Christ had risen from the dead. We commemorate these brave myrrh-bearer women. Brave because they were with Jesus in His death and now, after death they are still with Him. As faithful apprentices they were following their Lord beyond death.
