Sts. Perpetua and Felicity
Tomorrow is the feast day of two of my favorite saints-St. Perpetua and St. Felicity! I've loved them (especially St. Felicity) ever since I first read the account of their martyrdom. I was even planning on taking the name Sr. Felicity Marie when I was discerning my vocation in the convent!
St. Perpetua was a noblewoman in the 3rd century, and St. Felicity was a slave (I think I've read accounts that Felicity was Perpetua's servant, but now I can't find any that say that). Both of the saints were mothers-St. Felicity gave birth while in jail!-and both were martyrs. They're so, so amazing! Please look up their story and ask for their intercession tomorrow! :)
Sts. Perpetua and Felicity, pray for us!
