Relic of St Felicity

From the Roman Martyrology for today, 7 March: [The] "memorial of the holy martyrs Perpetua and Felicity, arrested in Carthage under the emperor Septimus Severus together with other young catechumens... Felicity was a serving girl, who, since she was pregnant, was granted a respite, in accordance with the law, until she was delivered. Though she suffered in giving birth, when thrown to the wild beasts she rejoiced."
