July 10 - Saints Felicity and Sons
Felicity was a wealthy woman of Rome who lived during the 2nd century. After the death of her husband, she continued to serve God with acts of charity and through her example many converted to Christianity. She was arrested along with her seven young men thought to be her sons. They were martyred in Felicity’s presence and she endured the pain with great hope. In the end she was decapitated.
