Roman Basilica of St. Cecilia: Buona Festa!

Today is the feast of St. Cecilia, November 22. 

St. Cecelia, a Roman by birth, was forced to marry Valerian, a pagan.  She converted him and Tiburtius, his brother, to the Faith.  She died in A.D. 230.

Auguri to every girl named Cecilia!

"O God, You gladden us with the annual feast of Blessed Cecilia, Your virgin martyr; grand that as we honor her in this service, so we may follow the example of her holy life."
