Blooming in the Desert presents Mother Melania: "Spiritual Wholeness: Overcoming the Passions by Strengthening the Virtues"

Every year our Orthodox clergy put together Lenten retreats for Nativity and for Great and Holy Lent.

This year we were highly privileged and honored to have Mother Melania come and do the talk, "Spiritual Wholeness:  Overcoming the Passions by Strengthening the Virtues". 

Blooming in the Desert recorded and produced the five part CD series which is available for sale but which also can be listened to on their homepage here.

It is a very worthy listen for the learning of very practical information on the living of the spiritual life.

Mother Melania used to belong to my Goddaughter's monastery in Santa Paula, but she recently became the Superior of a monastery in Calistoga. I talked with her last November.

I wish you could have been here. After the talk, I and my brothers put out a general invite to those in attendance for food and fellowship at Kyklos. A large group, including Mother Melania, actually came down to the restaurant and it was a wonderful experience. Before leaving, we gave her a tour of the restaurant and she blessed us.

Christ is Risen!
