Saint Perpetua and her Companions, Carthaginian Martyrs

Martyrdom of Perpetua, Felicitas, Revocatus, Saturninus, and Secundulus (Menologion of Basil II)

Martyrdom of Perpetua, Felicitas, Revocatus, Saturninus, and Secundulus, from the Menologion of Basil II (c. AD 1000)

O God, who didst give a splendid courage to the Martyrs Perpetua and Felicitas, when leaving their babes, they went with bright and flashing eyes into the arena, and thus, with their companions, most nobly met their death: Grant that we may be worthy to climb the ladder of their sacrifice, and to be received into the garden of peace; through the same Jesus Christ thy son, who reigneth over the white host of martyrs, with the and thy Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who didst endue thy holy Martyrs Perpetua and Felicitas with grace to witness a good confession and to suffer gladly for thy name: Grant us, we beseech thee, so to follow their stedfastness that we may be partakers of thy heavenly kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
