I am a maidservant and hermitess. For 10 years, I lived in a tomb with food and drink delivered to me by one kind woman. In penance, I wished to see no one. A man previously had been lustful because of God's visage gift to me. Spinning flax, I prayed from early morning, until hour nine, meditating on the lives, teachings, and examples of the apostles, martyrs, patriarchs, and prophets. Melania the Elder visited me, but I did not see her. We only spoke. I died sleeping, 15 Sept.
