APR 26: SUNDAY OF THE MYRRH-BEARERS (3RD PASCHAL SUNDAY)

myrrh011 APR 26: CONFESSION – CANCELLED, 3RD HOUR – CANCELLED, DIVINE LITURGY (PRIVATE) – 08:30 AM

Parishes live-streaming in the Diocese can be found here: https://www.eparchyofpassaic.com/livestream

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.
