Text from the back of the card:
Feast Day -- November 22
Saint Cecelia lived in Rome. Because of her faith, she was killed by the Emperor. A story says that her husband, Valerian, was a martyr, too. The legend also says that Cecilia sang to God on her wedding day as well as when she was dying. Cecilia used her beautiful voice to pray to God in song. On her feast day, many people remember her by sinning songs and playing instruments.
Patron of musicians and church music. The Sisters of Saint Cecilia shear the lambs' wool used to make the palliums, or shoulder vestments, of new archbishops.
Saint Cecilia, you loved music and used your voice to honor God. May we use our musical talents to honor him as well. Amen.
