Holy and Great Wednesday Resource Page

On Holy and Great Wednesday, the Divine Fathers decreed that we should commemorate the harlot who anointed the Lord with myrrh, because this took place shortly before His saving Passion.


The woman who applied myrrh to the body of Christ
Anticipated the myrrh and aloes of Nikodemos.
