The Myrrh-bearing Women
As we make our way to Pentecost, we find each Sunday a specific feast or theme that is reflective of the season. This past Sunday, we remembered the myrrh bearing women. They were the first to find out about the Resurrection of Christ and the first to announce the good news unto the disciples. Learn more about these remarkable women and the icon of the feast in this video from Trisagion Films.
Two Sundays ago, we remembered how the Apostle Thomas doubted the Resurrection and how Jesus soon after appeared to him and the disciples even though the doors were shut. Learn more about the Sunday of Thomas and the aforementioned Sunday of the Myrrh-bearing women in the following podcasts from Ancient Faith Radio:
