The Gospels record the faithfulness of Christ's women disciples at the Cross.

Early in the morning of the first day of the week the women went to the tomb to anoint Jesus' body with spices since there was not time before his burial. These women were the first to find out about Christ's Resurrection at the "empty tomb". This event is celebrated in the Eastern churches on the Third Sunday after Pascha.

In many Eastern churches the ladies societies are called the "Myrrh Bearing Women's Society" in honor of these women.

Holy tradition names seven myrrh-bearers:
•   Mary Magdalene
•   Mary, the wife of Cleophas
•   Joanna, the wife of Herod's steward
•   Salome, the mother of the sons of Zebedee, James and John
•   Susanna
•   Mary, the sister of Lazarus
•   Martha, the sister of Lazarus
