APRIL 14, 15, 17 & 18: SUNDAY OF THE OINTMENT BEARERS (3RD PASCHAL SUNDAY)

myrrh011 APRIL 14: TYPIKA SERVICE – 4:00 PM; APRIL 15: MATINS – 7:00 AM, DIVINE LITURGY –

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.
