In Rome, there was a young virgin whose name was Cecilia. This young woman vowed her virginity to God and asked that angels and saints help to guard her virginity. Cecilia’s parents gave her away in marriage to a young man name Valerian. Cecilia told her husband her secret that she was accompanied by an angel that protected her from being touched by anyone. Valerian asked to see the angel and was told by Cecilia that if he believed in one God, and became baptized, he would be able to see the angel. Valerian was sent to the Pope and was baptized. When he returned home, he saw Cecilia praying, and with her an angel with flaming wings who was holding two crowns. The angel placed the crowns upon the heads of Valerian and Cecilia. When Valerian’s brother, Tibertius, learned of the baptism and crowning of his brother and Cecilia he too, was baptized. The two brothers then devoted themselves to burying slain martyrs but were arrested and executed for their acts of faith.
After converting many people to Christianity, Cecilia was then arrested. She was condemned to be sacrificed by suffocation in the baths of the city. Cecilia survived the confines of the baths so it was ordered that she be beheaded. Although Cecilia was struck three times with a sword, she was not beheaded, only wounded. She lived for three days during which she preached to many. When she died, she was buried by Pope Urban.
St Cecilia became the Patroness of music due to the heavenly music that she heard in her heart when she became married.

Prayer to St Cecilia
O glorious saint, who chose to die instead of denying your King, we pray you please to help us as his fair praise we sing!
We life our hearts in joyous song to honor Him this way and while we sing, remembering, to sing is to doubly pray.
At once in our hearts and in our tongues we offer double prayer sent heavenward on winged notes to praise God dwelling there.
While in our hearts and tongues we try with song to praise God twice, we ask dear saint, to help us be united c
lose to Christ!
