The Myrrh Bearer... icon that was given to me some years ago on a special Birthday hangs over my desk. It is of St Joanna the Myrrh Bearer.

"I don't think I've heard of her..." I said tentatively when it was placed in my hands "Oh, yes you have", I was told, and I was sent to look up the Bible's account of the Resurrection.

And there she is: Luke 24: 1-10. Joanna was one of the women who came  "on the first day of the week, at early dawn" with spices to anoint Christ's body.  And Joanna went  with Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and the other women, to tell the Apostles what they had seen and heard at the tomb...
