Saint Cecilia




     
      Today I came across this beautiful painting of my Confirmation Saint, Saint Cecilia. It's gorgeous and I can't believe I have never seen it, so I felt like sharing it so that others didn't have to suffer from the same ignorance ;) Saint Cecilia has always appealed to me because she is the patron saint of music; and as the story goes, she was married against her will to a young Roman, but with the help of God she was able to convince her husband to respect her vow of chastity and he converted to Catholicism. I've always felt like her story illustrated the power of women to do good, through the power of God of course, in the lives of men.
