NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “melétē (Μελέτη) Meletios (Μελέτιος)”, meaning “studious, industrious, provident”. 1) Saint Meletius of Antioch (died 381) was a Christian bishop, or Patriarch of Antioch, from 360 until his death. 2) Meletius was bishop of Lycopolis in Egypt. He is known mainly as the founder and namesake of the Meletians, one of several schismatic sects in early church history which were concerned about the ease with which lapsed Christians reentered the Church. The feast day is traditionally celebrated on February 12.
