St. Cecilia Prayer
O glorious St. Cecilia, virgin and
martyr, you won the martyr’s crown
without renouncing your love for
Jesus, the delight of your soul. We
ask that you help us to be faithful in
our love for Jesus, that, in the
communion of the saints, we may
praise Him twice in our song of
rejoicing for the Blood that He shed
which gave us the grace to accomplish
His will on earth.
