March 7 – Saints Perpetua and Felicity


listenCompassionate Savior, Saints Perpetua and Felicity (3rd century) are the patron saints of  expectant moms, young mothers, women wanting to become pregnant, and children who die prematurely.  I ask them to intercede for all the mothers—present and future—who are in my life.  O Jesus, heal those who have lost children and those unable to bear children.  Give a new understanding of love to those who have selfishly decided not to have children, use artificial birth control, or have aborted their babies.  And bring to the Holy Spirit’s wisdom those who are struggling to be good mothers.  Saints Perpetua and Felicity, pray for us.  Amen.
