Feast Day of Sts. Perpetua and Felicity
Perpetua and Felicity were early martyrs of the Church. Let us reflect on the words of St. Perpetua today.
”We were in the hands of our persecutors, when my father, out of the affection he bore me, made new efforts to shake my resolution. I said to him: ‘Can that vessel, which you see, change its name?’ He said: ‘No.’ I replied: ‘Nor can I call myself any other than I am, that is to say, a Christian.’”
Sts. Perpetua and Felicity, pray for us.
