St. Lea Comments

A letter which St. Jerome wrote to St. Marcella provides the only information we have about St. Lea, a devout fourth century widow. Upon the death of her husband, she retired to a Roman monastery and ultimately became its Superior.

    Please pray for Jacob that he finds peace and the right path, for Michelle and Gwen that the doctors can help them and for all cancer patients especially the children. Dear Lord thank you for making me cancer free.

    My name is also Leah, but no one spells it like I do. It's nice to see all of the gracious commets accompying this article about a saint that's barely known. That is proof that she did good without any reconition from others... all she needed was the knowing that God was pleased with her.

    St. Lea, lowly, humble saint who renounced glory, fame and a life of comfort to serve God in prayer and contemplation, pray for all widows that they too might find a meaning in their lives. Your reward was in Heaven. May we work without expecting earthly reward or fame, because God in His goodness gives us much more than we could ever expect. Amen.

    It must have been really painful for a holy wife like St. Lea to see her husband in Darkness. But man falls in his FREE WILL OF CHOICE.
