This is our beautiful Saints Perpetua and Felicity Plaque. Saints Perpetua and Felicity were martyred c. 203 a.d. in Carthage, North Africa. When they were martyred together, Perpetua was a married noblewoman and young mother, only 22 years old and still nursing her infant (as depicted on the plaque), while Felicity, her slave, was seven months pregnant. This bronze plaque is an especially fitting gift for a confirmation, first communion, a birthday, and the feastday of Perpetua and Felicity on March 7th.
A Solid Bronze Wall Plaque
Measuring 7.9 x 6.3 inches – this plaque hangs with ease on the wall in home or office. A master bronze-smith of world renown designed and realized this solid bronze plaque in Germany. This is a most fitting gift for that special “Perpetua” or “Felicity” in your life!
Mistress and Slave in Life – Sisters and Friends in Death
Saint Felicity (in German, Felizitas) and Perpetua are depicted on this plaque. The wild cow which seriously wounded them during their martyrdom is in the lower right corner of the plaque. Perpetua and Felicity are a familiar pairing, always mentioned together in the First Eucharistic Prayer of the Mass of the Roman Rite. Inseparable in life as mistress and slave, both young mothers, inseparable in death as sisters and friends, martyrs for their Christian faith.
