Pray to End Human Trafficking all Month!

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange have prepared a wonderful prayer calendar from January 11th (Human Trafficking Awareness Day) to February 8th (Feast Day of St. Josephine Bakhita - patron saint of victims of trafficking).  Click HERE to download a copy of the prayer calendar and share with others!

Daily Prayer: 

God of hope and peace, touch our hearts and energize our ongoing efforts in abolishing this crime against humanity so that every victim is freed and every survivor’s life rekindled. You blessed St. Josephine Bakhita of Sudan with mercy and resilience. May her prayers comfort and strengthen the women, men and children who are in search of freedom.

(Fill in appropriate daily prayer)

We ask for transformation of heart for those who inflict pain, anguish and grief on our sisters and brothers. Give them compassion, generosity and the courage to stand in solidarity with others so that together we heal the hearts and lives of all your people. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, Forever and ever. Amen.
