St. Perpetua

In the early days of the Church, Perpetua was a young, wealthy woman who was imprisoned for her refusal to worship anyone but Christ. She and her fellow prisoners were to be killed by being thrown to wild animals. All the prospective martyrs were terrified, but Perpetua set aside her fears, encouraged the others, and went bravely to her death for love of Christ.
