On 22 July, the Orthodox church honours the memory of the first herald of the resurrection of Jesus Christ – Mary Magdalene, Holy Myrrhbearer and Equal to the Apostles. She was the first person to have exclaimed: Christ is risen!

It is said that a woman named Mary Magdalene (i.e. of Magdala) approached Jesus Christ in Galilee and asked his help, and seven demons were driven out of her body. From that moment on, Mary followed Jesus until his death, was the first to have seen his empty tomb, and to have heard the words by the resurrected Jesus.
