The Sunday of the Myrrhbearers is one of my name days, as my patron saint Joanna was a myrrhbearer. If you want to know more about the people included in that group, click on the tag above and you can read posts from the past.
Today, I want to share with you another post from St. Elizabeth’s Convent in Belarus, a place from which joy typically emanates. I should not be surprised, then, that their blog for this Sunday is delightful.
The flowers decking the arch in this photo express an extravagant love imitating that of those men and women who attended to our Lord in his death. The other photos and the whole article are worth taking a look: The Myrrhbearers’ Joy
Here at my house, I have this icon that my late husband gave me,
which rejoices my heart in several ways:
Christ is risen!

He is risen indeed! I so enjoyed the quote in your sidebar from Geo Bernard Shaw about crude classifications. Makes me giggle and nod my head. I have a few crude classifications myself. Wishing you a beautiful day, Gretchen.
Indeed He is Risen!!!! I can see why that icon would be so meaningful to you in so many ways, including because your Husband gave it to you!
He is risen indeed! 🙂
He is risen indeed, aleluia!
