St. Cecilia was an early Christian martyr. According to legend, her persecutors attempted to suffocate her with toxic oven fumes. Instead of choking, she sang. They also tried to behead her, but failed. She died three days later in her home. https://t.co/x7wUTiTzPr #ewtn pic.twitter.com/LoFX90Gkra— EWTN (@EWTN) November 22, 2020

The Scriptures are replete with exhortations to worship with music. As Christians, we are called to glorify our Lord through song and melody, lifting up His name in praise and thanking him for his goodness. #Catholic #music https://t.co/NtWD0cbSAL— National Shrine (@MarysShrine) November 21, 2020
