Sfânta Mironosiţă '''Ioana''', soţia lui Huza, the steward-administrator of King Herod Antipas, is listed in [[
Gospel of Luke| Luke]] 8 :3 as one of the women who followed [[ Christ]] from Galilee and supported the [[ disciple]] s, along with [[Susanna the Myrrh-bearer|Susanna]], [[ Mary Magdalene]], and others. In Luke 23 :55-24 :11, we have the story of how these same women went to the tomb to finish the job of embalming Jesus' body, which was hastily begun by [[ Joseph of Arimathea| Joseph]] and [[ Nicodemus the Righteous| Nicodemus]]. They were perplexed when they found the tomb empty except for the grave clothes. The [[angel]] appeared unto them and proclaimed the [[Resurrection]]. They believed and became the first evangelists of the risen Christ. The Church celebrates her [[feast day]] on [[ June 27]], as well as on the [[Sunday of Myrrh-bearing Women|Sunday of the Myrrh-bearers]].
