A Spirit That Still Prevails
Many people suffer because of abuse and oppression. Although helping them often seems like an impossible task, one thing we can always do is pray. We can also seek wisdom from The Holy Trinity, Blessed Mother, The Bible and the saints who have gone before us – all in Jesus’ name.
St. Josephine Bakhita, the patron saint of Sudan who was born in the Darfur region in 1869, kidnapped, sold into slavery and tortured as a child and teenager before ending up as a beloved nanny to Mimmina Michieli and later as a free, much-loved and revered Canossian Sister and Daughter of Charity, has much to teach us. She has also won graces for people who sought her intercession.
