Lent 2018

Wednesday of the Third Week of Lent


Today we remember the two early Christian martyrs, Perpetua and Felicity.


Pope Francis said in a morning meditation that Perpetua and Felicity "went to their martyrdom as though they were going to their wedding" (May 22, 2014). He said that Christian joy can be found even in suffering and persecution.  


Pray for persecuted Christians today with these sample intercessions.


Perpetua and Felicity were put to death because of their belief in Christ. Persecution of Christians continues today in many parts of the world. Take time today to read about places where your brothers and sisters in Christ face persecution.
