Susanna (/suˈzænə/, Greek: Σουσαννα, Sousanna) is one of the women associated with the ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. Susanna is among the women listed in Luke 8 (8:1–3) as being one of the women who has been "cured of evil spirits and diseases" and provided for Jesus out of their resources.

And Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward; and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance. (Luke 8:3)

The name Susanna means "Lily".[1]

Susanna is not included in the Old and Revised Roman Martyrology of the Catholic Church. Although mentioned as a disciple of Jesus, she is not venerated as a saint in the Catholic Church. She is often confused with Saint Susanna, a third century Christian martyr. She is included in the Myrrhbearers by the Eastern Orthodox Church.[2]
