Welcome to Day 2 of the Saints of Color Novena. Sr. Grace Augustine, Carmel DCJ introduces us to Saint Josephine Bakhita, a woman who practiced heroic forgiveness. Today she is known as the patron saint of human trafficking.


Novena Prayer:

Almighty Father, we pray as one Church, through the intercession of these holy people, that we may experience a deeper conversion of heart as we seek to imitate the love of your son, Jesus.

Send your Holy Spirit to inflame our hearts with a desire for sanctity and justice. Through the lives of these virtuous people, inspire us to grow in holiness and work towards greater racial reconciliation in a world that is in need of hope and peace.

In your name we pray, Amen.
