Commemorated February 1

Sts. Perpetua and Felicitas were martyred in Carthage, North Africa, on March 7, 203 A.D. (or 202 A.D.), together with three companions, Revocatus, Saturus, and Saturninus. Their martyrdom took place during the rule of Septimius Severus (193-211 A.D.), who issued an imperial decree forbidding all imperial subjects under severe penalties to become Christians. Vibia Perpetua was a young married lady of noble birth, and Felicitas was her pregnant slave. The Acta SS. Perpetuæ et Felicitatis is perhaps the most beautiful and famous of all extant (non-official) Acts of the Martyrs. It includes the autograph notes of Perpetua and Saturus, and an eye-witness's account of the martyrdom, which took place in Carthage's amphitheatre.

    Historically accurate portrayal of these north African martyrs, tenderly rendered with humble understated facial expressions inviting us to pray with them and sense the glory they now enjoy.
