A secret disciple, Righteous Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the Lord's body. He removed it from the Cross, wrapped it in linen, and buried it in a grave in the Garden of Gethsemane that he had prepared for himself. Together with the MostHoly Mother of God and the Holy Myrrh-Bearing Women, he rolled a heavy stone at the entrance to the Tomb. Righteous Joseph preached the Gospel around the world, and died peacefully in England. (Jul 31; icon by Deacon Matthew Garrett, Flickr)
