Our Work: Prayer

Through St. Josephine Bakhita’s Eyes: Praying for Light in the Shadows of Human Trafficking

Amidst the darkness of human trafficking, where hope can seem fleeting and freedom a distant dream, we turn to faith, finding solace and strength in the intercessory power of prayer. St. Bakhita, a beacon of resilience who herself endured the horrors of this heinous crime, becomes our guiding light, illuminating a path towards healing and liberation.

For the Victims:

Through St. Bakhita’s eyes, we pray for the victims of human trafficking. We pray for:

  • Solace and healing: May they find peace in the midst of pain, their trauma gently soothed by divine grace.
  • Courage and resilience: May they rise above their torment, empowered by a spirit of unwavering strength.
  • Freedom and restoration: May the shackles of exploitation be broken, guiding them towards a life of dignity and self-determination.

For the Traffickers:

With St. Bakhita’s compassion, we extend our prayers to the perpetrators, for a transformation of hearts:

  • May they awaken to the depth of their cruelty: May the scales fall from their eyes, revealing the devastating impact of their actions.
  • May they experience the power of remorse: May they be touched by the cries of their victims, leading them to repentance and change.
  • May they embrace the path of justice: May they choose accountability and reparation, paving the way for true justice.

Pope Francis reminds us “Prayer is a cry of hope, a cry of trust, a cry of love.”

Pope Francis

In this spirit, we raise our voices to heaven, not only for the victims and survivors, but also for the traffickers, trusting that even the darkest hearts can be touched by the transformative power of God’s love.
