Ss. Perpetua and Felicitas

March 6, 2021

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 6 of March, repeating indefinitely

The account of the martyrdom of Saints Perpetua and Felicitas forms one of the finest pages of the history of the first centuries of the Church. It shows us clearly the wonderful sentiments of these two women when they heard that they had been condemned to the wild beasts. Knowing their own weakness but relying on the strength of Christ, who was fighting with them, they went to their martyrdom as to a triumphant celebration, to which they were invited by Christ. They were exposed to wild beasts in the amphitheatre at Carthage, AD 203, and finally dispatched by the sword. Their names are still mentioned together in the Canon of the Mass.
