Santa Cecilia (2nd century - 3rd century), Christian martyr, music patrons, instrumentalists and singers. Born by a noble Roman family, according to folk tradition, the wedding day with the pagan Valerian followed the music of the festival singing praises to the Lord, praying to keep it pure in the heart and in the body so that his faith would not be confused. The groom, becoming aware of his vote, converted to Catholicism and was baptized by Pope Urbano I during the first wedding night, together with his brother Tiburzio. The two became fervent Christians and soon suffered the martyrdom, converting with the example of their unshakeable faith also the Massimo officer, who shared their fate. Cecilia was surprised to pray on the tombs of her husband, her brother-in-law, and Massimo; Judge Almachus condemned him to die suffocated in the bathroom of his house, but instead of dying, he sang praises to the Lord; after several other tortures, he changed his sentence into decapitation, three shots were not enough to give him the death and the executioner, who had run out of contract, left him in an agony that lasted for three days, during which many Christians who she had converted to her visit, and put her in her blood as she exhorted them to fortify in the faith. When he finally spat, Pope Urban I buried it with the Popes, and converted his home to a church. Commemoration on November 22nd. Colored Etching, Italy 1886
