Saint Cecilia was of an illustrious Roman family. On being betrothed to Valerian,
she drew him to the Faith of Christ, and he in turn drew his own brother
Tiburtius to the same. They contested in martyrdom during the reign
of Diocletian, in the year 288.
Kontakion in the Fourth Tone:
In godly wise let us, the hosts of the faithful, sing hymns to her
wedded to Christ of her own will, Cecilia, whose pure heart with
virtues was adorned; for she wholly put to shame the conceit of Almacius,
and she shone bright as the sun amidst them that pursued her and
then appeared to those upon the earth as a divine staff that strengthened
the holy Faith.
