St. Perpetua is often mentioned at Mass, but who is she? She was a 22 year old mother, martyred during one of the Roman persecutions in 203. Her story, written by Perpetual herself, is moving. It not only describes her great faith, but also her courage. Perpetua’s account also gives witness to several, uniquely Catholic beliefs. This includes purgatory, the communion of saints, and intercessory prayer for those who have died. For those who may be interested in the complete account, find: “St. Perpetua: The Passion of Saints Perpetua and Felicity 203”.
