Saint Cecilia

November 22

“Let me love you, Lord, and give thanks to you and confess to your name, because you have forgiven my grave sins and wicked deeds. By your sheer grace and mercy, you melted my sins away like ice. To your grace also do I also ascribe whatever sins I did not commit, for what would I not have been capable of. I who could be enamored even of a wanton crime I acknowledge that you have forgiven me everything, both the sins I willfully committed by following my own will, and those I avoided through your guidance.”

Confessions II,7,15
