Saint Prisca suffered cruel torments, at the age of thirteen, under The Emperor, Claudius, in the 1st-Century A.D.

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 her Virginity and of her Martyrdom.

Mass: Me exspectavérunt.
Collects: Proper to this Saint's Feast Day.
