Book of Saints – Joanna

Article

(Saint) Widow (May 24) (1st century) The wife of Chuza, housesteward of King Herod Antipas. She was one of the holy women who accompanied Our Lord in his journeyings and who brought spices and ointments to the Sepulchre on Easter morning (Luke 8:3; 24:10). Nothing more is known concerning her. The Greeks and Armenians honour her on their Festival of “The Holy Ointment Bearers.”
