Make my heart immaculate that I might not be put to shame.
O God, who gladden us each year
with the feast day of your handmaid Saint Cecilia,
grant, we pray,
that what has been devoutly handed down concerning her
may offer us examples to imitate
and proclaim the wonders worked in his servants
by Christ your Son.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
– Amen. (C&P from iBreviary because I am lazy today)
Perhaps read the story of Saint Cecilia here if you are struggling to remember why your heart should be gladdened today with the celebration of Cecilia’s feast.
