St. Cecilia Comments

In the fourth century appeared a Greek religious romance on the Loves of Cecilia and Valerian, written, like those of Chrysanthus and Daria, Julian and Basilissa, in glorification of the virginal life, and with the purpose of taking the place of the sensual romances of Daphnis and Chloe, Chereas and Callirhoe, etc., which were then popular.

    I still don't know anything that I was looking for. Did she have siblings? When was she canonized? Birthday? Death date? Maybe no ones knows.

    Any bio on a Saint's life should not leave you with a feeling of doubt. I didn't appreciate this one for the beginning section. It downplays the historical value, and emphasizes superstition. I love the story of St. Cecilia as told with the faith of the church that has venerated her for ages. St. Cecilia, PLEASE, pray for us.

    Absolutely glorious! I am preparing to sing with others for a Memorial Mass to be held for St. Cecilia on November 21 in Dallas, TX at Cathedral Guadalupe and now it will be so much more than I imagined after reading this story of her on this site. I love it!!

    I love this sight! I'm so glad as to have picked St.Cecilia as my confirmation name, she is a real inspiration against what we'd now call normal in todays society.
    Please pray with us, Cecilia.
