Sunday of The Holy Myrrhbearers

Stock#: JD062L

Price : US$ 809.95


This is a hand-painted icon of The Holy Myrrhbearers (approx. dimensions: 11 4/5" x 15 3/4"), a tempera-on-wood reproduction of the original icon.

"The icon of the Sunday of the Holy Myrrhbearers depicts the biblical story of the women arriving at the tomb to anoint the body of Christ. The angel is seated upon the stone that covered the tomb, and he is pointing to the empty garments showing that Christ has risen from the dead."

Apolytikia (Second Tone)
"When You did descend unto death, O Life Immortal, then did You slay Hades with the lightening of Your Divinity. And when You did also raise the dead out of the nethermost depths, all the power in the Heavens cried out: O Life-giver, Christ our God, glory be to You.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

The noble Joseph, taking Your immaculate body down from the Tree, and having wrapped it in pure linen and spices, laid it for burial in a new tomb. But on the third day You did arise, O Lord, granting great mercy to the world.

Now and forever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Unto the myrrh-bearing women did the Angel cry out as he stood by the grave: Myrrh-oils are meet for the dead, but Christ has proved to be a stranger to corruption. But cry out: The Lord is risen, granting great mercy to the world."
