Today’s Feast Day: St Cecilia

Today is the Feast Day of St Cecilia.  St Cecilia is viewed by the Roman Catholic Church as a perfect example of a Christian woman.  She is pictured her because she is known to have played music to God ‘in her heart’.  Saint Cecilia is the patron saint of musicians.  Do you know any musicians who are finding it hard to get the recognition they deserve or are struggling with their craft? Why not say a small prayer for them today?

The painting is by Guido Reni.

Today’s Feast Day: St Edmund

Today is the feast day of St Edmund Rich, who lived and died as a Christian martyr in the year 869. He was buried in Bury St Edmund’s, the town that took his name.  St Edmund is another of those saints that is forgotten by most people.  Why not say a prayer to him today and ask him to intercede for you and your special intention?
