Saint Josephine Bakhita – February 8th

For many years, Josephine Bakhita was a slave but her spirit was always free and eventually that spirit prevailed. Josephine’s body was mutilated by those who enslaved her, but they could not touch her spirit. Her Baptism set her on an eventual path toward asserting her civic freedom and then service to God’s people as a Canossian Sister. There is a movie about her life on FORMED.ORG.
