February 8 Feast of St. Josephine Bakhita, Virgin (1869 – 1947)
“If I were to meet the slave-traders who kidnapped me and even those who tortured me, I would kneel and kiss their hands, for if that did not happen, I would not be a Christian and religious today.”
–St. Josephine Bakhita
Have I been persecuted, betrayed, or treated unjustly? What great good has God worked out of my tragedy? I pray for the eyes to see.
