St. Josephine Bakhita, pray for us!

Toward the end of her life, Mother Bakhita used to smile and say:

"I travel slowly, one step at a time, because I am carrying two big suitcases. One of them contains my sins, and in the other, which is much heavier, are the infinite merits of Jesus. When I reach heaven I will open the suitcases and say to God: 'Eternal Father, now you can judge.' And to St. Peter: 'Close the door, because I'm staying.'"

Happy Feast day!  We are having such a great time learning about St.  Josephine,
 and the Sudan.
HERE Is a coloring page for today.
St. Josephine, pray for us!

God bless,
