Relic of St Perpetua

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; of these, Perpetua, a married woman about twenty years of age, was a mother with an infant at the breast... [She and her serving girl Felicity] processed from prison into the amphitheatre with happy faces, as if looking to heaven".
