St. Josephine Bakhita, as a child sold as a slave, you endured untold sufferings.
Once liberated, you found true redemption in your encounter with Christ and His Church.
O St. Bakhita, assist all who are trapped in modern slavery. Intercede with God for their release from all forms of captivity and human trafficking, including those who enslave them.
Comfort them and let them see our Merciful God in your life’s example of Hope and Faith. Help them find healing from their multiple woundedness.
We ask all these in the name of Jesus the Christ, the Wounded Healer. Amen.
