St Josephine Bakhita

For St Josephine Bakhita, a survivor of human trafficking, the discovery of Jesus Christ, her true master, gave meaning to her appalling suffering.

Part 1

Part 2


St Josephine Bakhita was a trafficked child: abducted from her home and family by slave raiders, sold and re-sold, and horribly abused. To a succession of cruel owners she was a thing, not a person, and even her name was taken from her. Yet her discovery of Jesus Christ, her true master, gave meaning to her appalling suffering.

Based on the ⁠Catholic Truth Society⁠ book by Jean Olwen Maynard, this audiobook tells the incredible story of a saint whose story is sadly very relevant for society today.

“Human trafficking is an open wound on the body of contemporary society, a scourge upon the body of Christ. It is a crime against humanity.” (Pope Francis)
