Month of March Dedicated to Women

Perpetua and Felicity (d. 203)

A noblewoman and her servant girl.
With Christ, however, they embraced in faith and were co-martyrs. 22-year-old Perpetua, who had a young child, and, her former slave, Felicity who was eight months pregnant were among six Christians condemned to the sword  by Roman authorities.

While in prison Felicity gave birth the night before to a baby, just hours before the sword killed her.

A Christian couple was given the child.

A holy kiss by the two women with each other was witnessed by eyes who accounted it.

They refused to renounce their faith.

And, I wonder if faith will have any children today!

Will it dads, moms, more?
