A blessed feast of St. Cecilia!




A blessed feast of St. Cecilia! She lived in Rome around 230 AD. Cecilia kept a lifelong vow of chastity in the face of her imposed marriage. She converted her husband to Christianity. Both were martyred. Cecilia is the patroness of music due the the fact that she sang beautiful hymns to Our Lord on her wedding day. This ethereal painting, "St. Cecilia" was done by John William Waterhouse 1849--1917.
