Letter from Fr. Paul
Dear Friends,
This week I am writing about St. Melania the
Younger (383-439). (She was named after her
grandmother, St. Melania the Elder.) You may think that
she must be rather obscure, but she was one of the great
women of the early church. I find her life very interesting.
But I think most would say it was unusually varied for a
woman of those Roman times. My point is that Melania’s
life passed through many experiences and roles—as wife
and mother, nun and hermit, pilgrim and spiritual
director.
She began life as a daughter of a very wealthy
Christian family in Rome. As a young girl Melania desired
to consecrate herself to God but her family had other
plans. At age fourteen, they forced her to marry a man
named Pinian. After the death in infancy of her first two
children her husband consented that she follow her
vocation. What is more, she convinced her widowed
mother and her husband Pinian to also adopt her lifestyle
of prayer and pious works. First they divested themselves
of their fabulous wealth. They set their eight thousand
slaves free and distributed the proceeds of their many
estates to the poor.
In 406 the family left Rome for North Africa and
the city of Tagaste. Joining the local church they became
very active members even counting among their new
found friends St. Augustine. Here in North Africa Melania
established two monasteries, one for men and the other
for women, where she lived. She supported herself by the
transcription of manuscripts (she was fluent in Latin and
Greek).
In 417 Melania and family moved to the Holy
Land, where they settled in Jerusalem. After studying the
spirituality of the Desert Fathers, she became resolved to
live a life of solitude and prayer. Nonetheless, she became
closely acquainted with the community in Bethlehem. This
community included two great saints of the time, Paula
and Jerome. After fourteen years her mother and husband
died. She buried them on the Mount of Olives. Nearby
their graves she established a cell in which to live. It
eventually became the center of a large convent of holy
women.
In 439 she went to celebrate Christmas in
Bethlehem with her friend St. Paula. There she became
seriously ill. Sensing that her life was coming to an end she
sent for her Sisters to express her farewell, “for I am going
to the Lord.” On Sunday, December 31, she attended
Mass and spent the rest of the day receiving visitors.
Finally she asked them to leave because she wanted to
rest. She died uttering her final words: “As the Lord willed,
so it is done.”
God Bless, Fr. Paul

IRS Fraud Update
According to the IRS, the best way to protect yourself from
tax fraud on your 2014 return is to file your return as
early as possible. Although we have not identified the
specific source of the breach affecting the Archdiocese, we
do know that approximately 5,900 members of our
community have been victims of a national tax fraud
scheme. The Archdiocese has concluded its investigation,
having explored all reasonable leads identified in our
investigation. Although we have not found anything in our
internal systems to suggest they were compromised, we
are still committed to working towards having the
responsible people held accountable.
