I am testing the Saints' cycle which has been screwed up in Logos since 8.0 IIRC. I'm using the LCMS commemorations from Commemorations - Church Year - The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (lcms.org) i.e. the Lutheran Service Book.. (Yes, I'm nearly ready to get back to the tip of the day in the forums). Aug. 3 is assigned "Joanna, Mary, and Salome, Myrrhbearers". Do you know which Mary is intended? I'm not finding "which Mary" easily.

Note: List of named myrrhbearers (as I know them from Orthodox sources): Mary Magdalene; Mary, the mother of James and Joses; Mary, the wife of Cleopas; Martha of Bethany;Mary of Bethany; Joanna, wife of Chuza; Salome; Susanna; Joseph of Arimathea; Nicodemus

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

It would seem, that the mother of James is meant. I'm not LCMS (but ELCF), but this article

Joanna, Mary, and Salome, Myrrhbearers – Our Redeemer Lutheran Church (ourredeemernewark.org)

by John Rickert would point into that direction. At least that is Rickert's view.

Thank you. That would make sense on several levels.
