Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73).  Volume III: March.
The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
March 22
St. Lea, Widow
 
SHE was a rich Roman lady; after the death of her husband she mortified her flesh by wearing rough sack-cloth, passed whole nights in prayer, and by humility seemed every one’s menial servant. She died in 384, and is honoured on this day in the Roman Martyrology. St. Jerom makes an elegant comparison between her death and that of Prætextatus, a heathen, who was that year appointed consul, but snatched away by death at the same time.—See St. Jerom, Ep. 20. (olim. 24.) to Marcella, t. 4. p. 51. Ed. Ben.  1
