Saint Josephine Bakhita ~ Flower of the African Desert
The life of Saint Josephine Bakhita is a journey of incredible grace. She was kidnapped, abused, and sold into slavery. However, what could have been fuel for a deep and lasting hatred turned to be the greatest blessing of her life. By the grace of God and help from some faithful friends she found forgiveness and peace in the Catholic Faith. Her key to heroic sanctity: living her life day by day with Jesus, her true Master.
On the cover is an artist rendition depicting Saint Josephine Bakhita as a slave in her native land of Sudan. Behind her is a slave caravan and her beloved continent of Africa. She is holding chains representing her years in slavery and the crucifix which was given to her before her Baptism.
