Saint of the Day

St. Cecilia (2nd century)
Cecilia was a virgin who was given in marriage against her wishes. She told her husband that she was accompanied by an angel, but in order to see it, he must be purified. After he was baptized, he found her in prayer accompanied by a praying angel. Her husband was killed in 117 for giving poper burials to Christians martyred by the Romans. Later, she too was killed when she refused to sacrifice to false gods.

Reflections from the Saints

Our actions have a tongue of their own; they have an eloquence of their own, even when the tongue is silent. For deeds prove the lover more than words.
– St. Cyril of Jerusalem
