Bakhita: Words of Wisdom

Bakhita: Words of Wisdom


“The Lord has loved me so much. We must love everybody… we must be understanding and compassionate.”

“Be good, love the Lord. Pray for those who do not know him. What a great grace it is to know God.”

“The Lord is always with me, within me, and I adore Him!”

Humility & Gratitude:

“What did the Lord do to choose just me.

I will never be able to express sufficiently my gratitude to the good Lord.”

“How I thank the Lord for saving me, for keeping me, for better things.”


“If I were to meet the slave merchants who kidnapped me, and even those who tortured me, I would kneel and kiss their hands. If what happened to me had never taken place, how could I have become a Christian and a religious?
