Saints Perpetua and Felicity

The martyrdom of Saint Perpetua and Felicity has been remembered through the ages for a number of reasons.  These beautiful you women were strong and steadfast in their bravery - willing to die rather than give up Christ, and they were willing to die even if that meant giving up their much loved babies. They are also remembered because of the gruesome and cruel manner of their deaths.

But maybe we are primarily able to remember these saints from the early centuries because we have the written words of Perpetua herself and from Christian witnesses who knew her.

The Martyrdom of Perpetua and Felicity

St. Perpetua and Felicity
Spoon Saints of Perpetua and Felicity my daughter made a few years ago.

I ordered the story of Perpetua from Catholic Heroes for the Faith.  I did watch this with my kids. Rosie, who was 5 at the time, had a hard time with it, but she is always very sensitive when watching shows and movies.  I might wait another year before I show it again.  It did hold the interest of my older children though and I thought it told the story well.
