 Our Description

Pack of 100.

This paper St. Cecilia holy card has the musician' prayer on the back.

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 lift 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 on our tongues we offer double prayer
Sent heavenward on winged notes to praise God dwelling there.
While with our hearts and tongues we try with song to praise God twice,
We ask dear Saint, to help us be united close with Christ!

St. Cecilia

St. Cecilia Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 11/22
Tridentine Calendar - 11/22


Patron Of: Composers, Musicians, Throat, Vocalists, Singers, Poets, Martyrs

Cultivated young patrician woman whose ancestors loomed large in Rome's history. She vowed her virginity to God, but her parents married her to Valerian of Trastevere. Cecilia told her new husband that she was accompanied by an angel, but in order to see it, he must be purified. He agreed to the purification, and was baptised; returning from the ceremony, he found her in prayer accompanied by a praying angel. The angel placed a crown on each of their heads, and offered Valerian a favor; the new convert asked that his brother be baptised.

The two brothers developed a ministry of giving proper burial to martyred Christians. In their turn they were arrested and martyred for their faith. Cecilia buried them at her villa on the Apprian Way, and was arrested for the action. She was ordered to sacrifice to false gods; when she refused, she was martyred in her turn.

The Acta of Cecilia includes the following: "While the profane music of her wedding was heard, Cecilia was singing in her heart a hymn of love for Jesus, her true spouse." It was this phrase that led to her association with music, singers, musicians, etc.

Died:
martyred c.117; suffocated for a while, and when that didn't kill her, she was beheaded; her grave was discovered in 817, and her body removed to the church of Saint Cecilia in Rome; the tomb was opened in 1599, and her body found to be incorrupt
