Historically Famous Felicitys
The best-known Felicity (one of the few women.saints named in the Roman Mass), was the slave girl of a wealthy Carthaginian woman named Perpetua. She and her mistress were arrested in 202 and faced certain death for their faith. The only question was whether Felicity might not be spared since she was pregnant. Eager to face martyrdom with her mistress, Felicity prayed and was brought into premature labour, giving birth to a son. Touched by their faith, the prison governor was converted, but they were nevertheless both tortured and killed by wild beasts.
