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

myrrh011 APR 26: CONFESSION – 8:45 – 9:30 AM, 3RD HOUR – 9:40 AM, DIVINE LITURGY (SCM) – 10:00 AM

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.
