Saint Josephine Bakhita, as a child, you were sold as a slave and had to spend untold difficulties and suffering.

Once freed from your physical slavery, you found the true redemption in your encounter with Christ and his Church.

Oh, St. Bakhita, help those who are trapped in slavery; intercede on their behalf before God so that they are freed from the chains of captivity.

May God free anyone who has been enslaved by man.

Provide relief to those who survive slavery and allow them to see Him as a model of faith and hope.

Help all survivors to find healing for their wounds.

We beg you to pray and intercede for those who are enslaved among us.
