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.
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.
