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.

    This was really helpful for me! I am being Confirmed later this year, and I chose to do St. Cecilia as my saint for a project I have to do. After reading this, it makes me realize how wonderful she was, and how glad I am that I chose her as my Confirmation saint.

    St. Cecilia forever! :D

    Thanks for the info. I'm choosing St. Cecilia for my confirmation name. What I really like about her is that she was able to convert so many hostile people just by being faithful. So anyways, thanks! And God bless all the others who are picking St. Cecilia. I hope we can all follow her example!

    I have chosen St. Cecilia as my saint name being that I absolutely admire her and what she did during her life here. I hope that she will bless me, as well as other musicians, and guide me whenever I play bassoon or flute.

    In 1968 i had visited rome. I stopped by the St peter and paul gift store to buy a religious item for my mother and mother -in- law. I came across a 10 inch marble statue of a woman laying down on her side wtih her head lying face down, arms.streched out along side her body.. I asked the sales girl if this was a religious statue and why is she lying down and you could not see her face. . She said yes it is Saint Cecilla and then proceed to tell me this wonderful story abo\ut St Cecilla. She was a noble woman who was excuted for her strong belief in the catholic religon. Because she was a nobel woman they could not put her to death in the collesium. They gave her poison, but she did not dye. They cut the back of her neck. The statue shows two cut marks in the back of her neck. As she laid dying she had one finger pointing out and on the other hand she had two fingers pointing out. The story goes that as she laid dying, she proclaimed her strong faith in the catholic religion. She did this wht her fingers Signifying the Father ,Son and the Holy Ghost. I purchsed two statues and had them bless by the pope. I have one of the statues today.
