Josephine Margaret Bakhita F.D.C.C.

Feast day: 8th February.

'Mother Moretta', as she was affectionately known, was born in Darfur, Sudan 1868, she died 8th February 1947 in Italy.

Canonised by Pope John Paul II  in 2000.

She is considered patron saint of Sudan, slaves and victims of human trafficking. 

Kidnapped and sold into slavery when a child she was given the name 'bakhita' meaning fortunate. After being sold several times she finally arrived in Italy and met the Canossian Sisters in Venice where she was baptized and confirmed, choosing the Christian name Josephine.

Josephine entered the Insitute of St Magdalene of Canossa in 1893, legally a free woman. She was professed in 1896. She served in their community in Verona for over 40 years until her death.

Pope John Paul II at her canonisation Mass said:
"We find a shining advocate of genuine emancipation. The history of her life inspires not passive acceptance but the firm resolve to work effectively to free girls and women from oppression and violence, and to return them to their dignity in the full exercise of their rights."
