St Prisca suffered cruel torments at the age of thirteen under the Emperor Claudius in the first century. In spite of the efforts made to force her to adore idols, her great faith filled her with the divine strength of Jesus and she went to heaven wearing the double crown of virginity and martyrdom.
Me exspectaverunt peccatores, ut perderent me: testimonia tua, Domine, intellexi: omnis consummationis vidi finem: latum mandatum tuum nimis. * Beati immaculati in via: qui ambulant in lege Domini.
The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I have understood Thy testimonies, O Lord: I have seen an end of all perfection: The commandment is exceeding broad. * Blessed are the undefiled in the way: who walk in the law of the Lord.
(Psalm 118:95-96,1 from the Introit of Mass)
