St. Josephine Bakhita Comments

St. Josephine Bakhita was born in Sudan in 1869.

    Today we are celebrating "Holyween" at our school and dressing up as the saints. My little girl and her friend are dressing like they believe St. Josephine would have looked and are so excited to share the saint's story and message with their classmates and friends. Thank you so much for all of this wonderful information! Have a blessed All Saints Day!

    I love St. Bhakita, from the first time i heard about her in 1998, i was preganat then and sed to myself that if i get a baby gal , ad name her after St. Bhakita and true to my expectation I got a bouncing baby gal on the 31st day of december 1998 and named her Linda Bhakita and i can testify that shes a humble gal and sincerely pray and hope that the Good Lord Thru the blessed intercession Of Mother Mary will allow my gal to serve as St Bhakita. her feast day is 8th February.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I'm an Administrator working for Saint Bakhita Health Centre in Yei South Sudan. This Health Centre was found in 1998 by Malteser International, the Organization from Malta Island which in colaboration with the Catholic Diocese of Yei in South Suda. Malteser Programme has helped and is continues to help our poor people with free treatment of Tuberculosis, Leprosy and African Tryponosomiasis (African Sleeping Sickness).

    As being a Sudanese and Saint Bakhita is also a Sudanese, many have accepted her Doctrines and believe in Her as our Mother and we look to her as our Servior.
