We’re Finally to the letter F! Ok, that was very un-creative…….sorry 😉 Check out these awesome ladies!
St Felicity was the slave of St Perpetua, who evangelized Felicity and 3 men to become Christians. They were arrested for their beliefs, and lived in torment in prison. Felicity was 8 months pregnant and fretted about her baby – Felicity had been set to be executed. Interestingly enough, in those times, it was against the law to execute a pregnant woman, to kill a child in the womb was shedding innocent and sacred blood. What a concept right? *sigh* Felicity gave birth to a baby girl 2 days before her execution date and she was adopted and raised by a Christian woman. St Felicity and St Paula were killed to start “the games”, first facing a rabid heifer, then their throats were cut.
St Flora was secretly raised as a Christian by her mother (her father had been Muslim). Her brother had accepted the Muslim religion, and tortured and battered Flora for her Christian beliefs. St Flora met St Mary, the sister of a martyred deacon. They surrendered to the Muslims and were placed in a brothel. They were both beheaded when they continued to claim the Christian faith.
