Saints Perpetua & Felicity
If you have ever read the account of the martyrdom of Perpetua and Felicity, you know how courageous both were and how God came first even when it meant that they would not be able to live and take care of their babies. They were only baptized in prison! Felicity gave birth to her baby just three days before they were flogged, exposed to the wild beasts, and then beheaded. Would I have had the courage and faith of these newly baptized North African women?
