St Cecilia (Cecelia) Medal, Patron Saint of Music, Poets & the Blind
It is believed that Saint Cecilia was born in the 2nd or 3rd century A.D., although the dates of her birth and martyrdom are unknown. There is a biography of St Cecilia dated in the 5th Century. Her name is spelled as Cecilia and Cecelia in different places and times.
Saint Cecilia is said to have heard heavenly music inside her heart when she was forced to marry the pagan, Valerian. She is the acclaimed patron saint of music, especially church music, as well as that of musicians, composers, instrument makers and poets. The name Cecilia means blind and so, although it is not known if she herself couldn't see, she is also the patron saint of the blind.
This medal has Saint Ceceila on the front and the words "Pray For Us" on the back.
