Every year, Christians honor the memory of the Holy Myrrh-bearing Women – girls who were close to Jesus Christ and dedicated their whole lives to him. Most of them were quite wealthy, so they helped not only morally, but also financially. UNIAN will tell you how to celebrate the wife’s day on May 8 this year.
Also today is Mother’s Day 2022 in Ukraine.
Day of the Myrrh-bearing Women 2022 – date and history
Orthodox believers celebrate this date on the second Sunday after Easter. In 2022, the holiday falls on May 8th.
According to biblical writings, the most famous girl close to Jesus Christ was Mary Magdalene. She led a sinful lifestyle, was possessed by demons, but the Son of God helped her get rid of it. Then she, believing in the power of the Lord, followed him. It is noteworthy that it was she who first learned about the Resurrection of Christ and told people about it.
At that moment, when the apostles denied Jesus, and the disciples fled, the girls stayed with him. They also brought myrrh (aromatic oil) for the funeral ritual. That is why the righteous became Women (women) Myrrhbearers (those who carry the world) and remained in the memory of Christians as prototypes of devotion, faith and love for man.
The Holy Scriptures call the names of the seven Myrrh-bearing Women: Mary Magdalene, Salome, Martha and Mary, Susanna, John, Mary Cleopova, but there is an opinion that there were many more.
Who is congratulated on the feast of the Myrrhbearing Women
Orthodox believers congratulate women on this day and consider this date an alternative to International Women’s Day, which is celebrated on March 8. Today it is customary to give gifts and give flowers to all girls, as well as to give compliments.
Among the people, the holiday was called “Woman’s Bratchina”, because the Slavic beauties celebrated it without men. They were not allowed even to the preparatory processes – cleaning the house, cooking and all other activities were carried out by the girls themselves. Then they gathered at someone’s house and arranged women’s gatherings.
