Thank you, St. Cecilia

With continued gratitude to the dedicated ministers who make music in our Church, here's a shout out to St. Cecilia.
St. Cecilia is the Patron Saint of music ministries and choir directors. She was a young patrician vowed to virginity to God, however, her parents engaged her to Valerian, who converted. They lived a life dedicated to celibacy. Her feastday is November 22nd. During the wedding Cecilia was singing in her heart a hymn of love for Jesus, her true spouse. She was martyred c. 117. She's also Patron Saint of composers, martyrs, poets and singers.
Special thanks to Unapologetic Catholic for the Patron Saints Quiz.
