March 7: STS. PERPETUA AND FELICITY, MARTYRS.
From the story of the death of the holy martyrs of Carthage
Called and chosen for the glory of the Lord
℟. Christ Jesus is at God’s right hand and pleads our cause.* Then what can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or hardship? Can persecution, hunger, nakedness, peril or the sword?
℣. These are the trials through which we triumph, by the power of him who loved us.* Then what can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or hardship? Can persecution, hunger, nakedness, peril or the sword?
With overwhelming love for you, Lord God, your martyrs Perpetua and Felicity defied the persecutor and overcame the pain of death. Listen to their prayers and grant that we may love you daily more and more. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Let us praise the Lord.
– Thanks be to God.
