St. Cecilia: We Are Not Chattel
I had never heard of St. Cecilia* and was pleased to make her acquaintance. She clearly has something timely to say.
Ann: St. Cecilia, Anita** says you have something for the blog.
St. Cecilia: Yes, Ann, that is correct. Allow me to introduce myself. I am a figure of legend and martyrdom whose journey on the planet was not always accurately reported, but that is not what I come to speak to you about today. I want to discuss the travesty of chattel, specifically, using women as chattel.
Let me be clear. There are no circumstances under which an arrangement to use a human being as chattel is appropriate. I was traded to my husband in marriage for goods, services, and societal status. It was the custom of the day to do so, and in many cases it still exists today even in your country, though perhaps not in such blatant form.
Women historically were married for sex, service, status, survival, and political purposes. We were in essence traded as chattel, and some even bought into the fiction that such arrangements were in our best interests.
It continues today. Look around you. Witness the efforts of the benefitted class to restore their favored status quo through controlling the bodies of those they still regard as chattel.
Even in my time I could not swallow such idiocy. I am here today to remind you that no one of us is chattel. Even traditional chattel, i.e., horses, cattle, and those animals considered produce, must not to be objectified as chattel, for each deserves individual respect for their roles on our planet.
Women, races of subordinate mien, or those practicing different religious traditions, as well as those assigned to the so-called lower classes have been vulnerable to this classification. The institution of marriage itself was one established by the male of the species to relegate women to powerless chattel and thereby simultaneously eliminate competition and increase the consequence and power of the male ruling class.
I refused to play this game, and surprising it was that I was not burned at the stake long before I was taken out by the powers that were. However, such was the force of the energy flowing through me that my husband came to understand his own peril should he have attempted to enforce a subservient role upon me. I served only my God, the one true creative force.
Each of you, each one of you, have that same power running through you, the power to stand up and defend the sacred soul that that is embodied in every gesture, every word, and every act of kindness that you undertake. There is no hierarchy in souls. I come today to remind you of the sacred truth of that statement.
In your world today, you stand on the brink of succumbing to the concept of rulers and chattel. This you must not do. In every step you take, every action that comes from your hands, and every word from your lips, you must proclaim the independent relationship of each soul with their maker. This is the most fundamental truth of the universe: each created being came into existence as the beloved child of the creator. Anything else is a lie.
It is this great truth that we must cleave to in times of trouble, in times where the force attempting to push us back into the world of chattel gathers steam to try to turn the world back to those who claim sacred power for themselves.
Each of you is asked to stand up. Do not give into the lie. Theirs is a fruitless task, for nothing can stand against the Holy Word. We are each of us separate and unique parts of a loving creation, and no amount of ill-directed hatred can change that fact unless we allow our own souls to be coopted. Even then we cannot give away that which is not ours.
Speak truth to temporal power. Let your Creator’s voice vibrate through your being, and the paper tigers purporting to claim your souls as chattel will soon find their duplicitous voices silenced.
Look around you. The revolution is underway.

*Saint Cecilia was held to be a Roman virgin martyr and is venerated in Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, and some Lutheran churches, such as the Church of Sweden. She became the patroness of music and musicians, it being written that, as the musicians played at her wedding, Cecilia "sang in her heart to the Lord". Musical compositions are dedicated to her, and her feast, on 22 November, is the occasion of concerts and musical festivals. Wikipedia.
