March 7 – Saint Perpetua and Saint Felicity
Perpetua was daughter of a nobleman of North Africa and Felicity was her servant. Even though they were a pagan family, Perpetua became a Christian despite her father’s pleas, and the fear for her life, since Christians were persecuted. Perpetua and her servant Felicity, who shared their faith and friendship, were persecuted, arrested, and taken to prison. Together they were both martyred.
How do your friendships help you live out your faith? How do you help your friends to remain in their faith?
