Cecilia: Virgin & Martyr
Martyrdom of St. Cecilia (1600) , by Stephano Maderno
The Catholic Encyclopedia brings us the details about this most popular saint.
Listen to your favorite piece of music today.
Pray for those who are musicians, especially those who labor in the vineyards of our parishes today.
May those efforts always strive to give, as Johann Sebastian Bach would write in a abbreviated manner upon his scores (without the Protestant connotation), this ultimate expression:
Soli Deo gloria!
Glory to God alone!
