Saint Cecilia, Virgin And Martyr
Cecilia was born of a noble Roman family, all of whom had embraced Our Lord Jesus and our Church. She was beautiful outside as well as inside, all through her life.

All through the prophetic books we see the LORD God Almighty speaking to His people through prophets that were called by God. The LORD sometimes speaks soothing words, and sometimes He roars like the Lion of Judah at them. Whilst we are this side of the cross and the wrath of God was poured out on Jesus for our current nations, I wonder how much we are like the ancient Israel?

One of my favourite books to read is a book about a person’s account of what heaven is like from that person’s visit to heaven in a vision or visions. I just love to read about heaven. I have been to heaven on a number of occasions, and so I thought I would write a short article about some of my visits and what I have seen. I have also had people and animals from heaven visit me on earth, and so I have a little idea. I do not have enough for a book, but I have enough to give you a little peek.Easter Videos for Church – Church Media Your Congregation Needs to See

One of the most pseudo chapters IMHO is the tale told in the Biblical Book of Exodus – an interesting work of fiction, but hardly history.
