St. Perpetua and St. Felicity

St. Perpetua and St. Felicity (3rd Century AD) lived in North Africa in a time when Christians were persecuted. St. Perpetua was a noble woman and St. Felicity was her slave. When St. Perpetua was arrested for being a Christian, her father begged her to renounce her faith but she refused to. Her slave, St. Felicity was also arrested for being a Christian and she gave birth to a child in prison. Both saints were martyred with many other Christians in a stadium. St. Perpetua and St. Felicity’s feast day is on 7 March.
