St. Josephine spent hours in Eucharistic Adoration and,
when one Sister asked if it tired her, she said,
"Not at all! I have been having a
wonderful time with Him.
He has waited so long for me."
St Josephine Bakhita
Religious (Canossian Daughters of Charity)
Feast Day - Feb 8
St Josephine was known for her smile, gentleness and holiness. She even went on record saying,“If I were to meet the slave-traders who kidnapped me and even those who tortured me, I would kneel and kiss their hands, for if that did not happen, I would not be a Christian and Religious today.”
