Cecilia the martyr & friend of musicians

This antique card was a gift from a friend in Seattle. It reminds me of my trip to Rome this past summer when I visited my patron, Cecilia, at her tomb right outside the walls of the Eternal City. Her testimony to sing the praises of God amidst her martyrdom is a reminder that we are all called to give witness to Christ in our own unique way.

On a personal note: Life is not about discovering what we think God wants. Life is a journey of unraveling what God has prepared for us as one made in His image!

To all my musician friends and to my Goddaughter: a blessed feast day! Happy Feast of Saint Cecilia! May she help us to grow in our commitment to singing God’s praises.
