Today we celebrate the feast of Saints Perpetua and Felicity. Saint Perperua was a noble who converted to to the faith, and Felicity was her slave who also converted. They were arrested for their beliefs, and at the time Felicity was with child. After the baby was born, Felicity and Perpetua were thrown into an arena with wild beasts, and then slain by the sword.
Ideas for Celebrating This Feast as a Family
- Pray for the grace of fortitude
- Pray for people separated from their families and for those persecuted for their beliefs.
- Pray for Christ-centered friendships for yourself and family members.
