Susanna the Myrrh-Bearer was one of the group of eight women identified in the New Testament that are called the myrrh bearing women. Susanna is mentioned in Luke 8:3 as one of these women, along with Joanna, Mary Magdalene, and others, who followed Christ from Galilee and supported Him and the disciples. She is associated in the group as one of the wealthy women who provided support for Jesus during his three year public ministry.

The Sunday of Myrrh-bearing Women falls on the second Sunday following Pascha.
