Saint Cecilia came from a rich family. She famously converted her new husband (whom when married, she heard heavenly music) and his brothers to the faith. The brothers were arrested and killed for not converting back. She is credited with converting over 400 people. Saint Cecelia was also arrested and put to death; however, the executioners were unable to hurt her. She eventually succumbed where she died in a prayer position. She is considered the first Saint whose body was incorrupted in death.
