For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. Saint John the Apostle

Saint Quote of the Day: Saint Josephine Bakhita

Saint Josephine Bakhita

I received the Sacrament of Baptism with such joy that only angels could describe.

-- Saint Josephine Bakhita



Note: On January 9, 1890 Sister Bakhita was baptized with the names of Josephine Margaret and Fortunata (which is the Latin translation for the Arabic Bakhita). On the same day she was also confirmed and received Holy Communion from Archbishop Giuseppe Sarto, the Cardinal Patriarch of Venice, the future Pope Saint Pius X, himself.
