Feast Day of St. Cecilia
November 22

Patroness of church music and musicians, whose feast celebration dates to the 4th century. Depicted with an organ, St. Cecilia has inspired musical tributes by Purcell (“Hail, Bright Cecilia”) and Handel (“Ode on St. Cecilia Day”).

To view an image for meditation, see Gentileschi's St. Cecilia.
