Biserica îşi aminteşte astăzi de Sf Cecilia, fecioară şi martiră. A trăit în trup la Roma, în vremea persecuţiilor. Părinţii ei stabiliseră un aranjament matrimonial, potrivit căruia ea urma să îl ia în căsătorie pe un păgân bogat, pe nume Valerian. Dar Cecilia, auzind chemarea Domnului, hotărâse să îşi consacre fecioria lui Cristos. Purta haine aspre sub cele frumos împodobite şi postea rugându-L pe Dumnezeu să o ajute să îşi păstreze promisiunea. Lui Valerian i-a spus că un înger veghează asupra virginităţii ei. Complet neîncrezător în povestea cu îngerul, Valerian îi spune că ar dori şi el să vadă un asemenea înger. Cecilia îl îndrumă să meargă la papa Urban, pontiful Romei între anii 223-230. Nu este relatat cu certitudine dacă Valerian a văzut ori nu a văzut îngerul păzitor al soţiei lui, ceea ce ştim este că s-a convertit şi a fost botezat de papa. O relatare pioasă ne spune că nu numai că Valerian ar fi văzut îngerul, dar a şi primit atât el, cât şi soţia sa Cecilia coroane nefăcute de mâini omeneşti. Ei ar fi fost văzuţi încoronaţi astfel de Tibertius, fratele lui Valerian şi cumnatul Ceciliei, care s-a convertit pe loc.

Toţi trei s-au îngrijit de trupurile martirilor creştini care au fost executaţi în cadrul teribilei persecuţii din vremea împăratului Diocleţian. Cei doi bărbaţi au ajuns ei înşişi în faţa prefectului Romei şi, mărturisindu-şi credinţa, au fost condamnaţi la moarte şi decapitaţi. Cecilia a supravieţuit un timp, în care zelul ei a făcut numeroase convertiri. Dar a venit şi ziua ei, când a fost condamnată la moarte, de astă dată prin tortura sufocării în aburii unei băi. A fost încuiată într-o baie şi focul aţâţat. A stat o zi şi o noapte, dar era încă în viaţă când soldaţii au deschis uşa. Văzând acest lucru, persecutorii au decis să fie decapitată. Călăul a lovit de trei ori, nereuşind decât să o rănească la gât, după care a fugit. Cu această rană la gât, Cecilia a mai trăit trei zile, în care Îl lăuda pe Dumnezeu, aducând la El multe suflete. Convertiţii înmuiau bureţi în sângele ei, care erau păstraţi ca relicve. În cinstea acestei sfinte a fost ridicată o biserică în secolul al V-lea, care este astăzi una dintre cele mai vechi biserici din Roma, loc de pelerinaj.

Sfânta Cecilia este patroana muzicii în general şi, cu precădere, a muzicii bisericeşti. Ea este adesea înfăţişată cu o cunună pe cap şi purtând un instrument muzical în mâini. Mulţi orbi o consideră patroană a lor, probabil din cauza numelui (Cecilia = cea care nu vede).

Când citesc cu cât de mult curaj aceşti creştini din primele secole de misiune a Bisericii îşi mărturiseau credinţa, ştiind bine la ce fel de pericole se expun, nu mă pot abţine să nu mă gândesc cât de diferiţi suntem astăzi. Astăzi, când nimeni nu ne condamnă la moarte şi nici măcar nu ne biciuieşte dacă mergem la biserică să spunem Simbolul Credinţei. Astăzi când, în comparaţie cu acei creştini care se rugau în tot felul de catacombe reci, umede şi subpământene, noi avem biserici mari, luminoase, frumos împodobite, unde este cald şi corul cântă plăcut urechilor. Oare nu este o adevărată ruşine ca, în ciuda unor asemenea condiţii la care zecile de mii de martiri nici nu visau, să Îl lăsăm pe Cristos singur în sfintele lăcaşuri ?

Sancta Cecilia, ora pro nobis !
