Friday is the Feast of St Josephine Bakhita who was trafficked and sold as a slave many times. Friday is therefore a day of prayer for Victims of Human Trafficking. Please offer this prayer on Friday:
''We pray for the victims of human trafficking that they may be helped to rebuild their lives after the traumatic experiences they have gone through. We pray that we, as the Church, will continue to defend victims of human trafficking. We pray for our governments that they may make and implement laws that will protect victims of modern day slavery. We pray for those organisations dedicated to eradicating modern day slavery that they will be courageous in the face of challenges. We pray for those caring for the victims of human trafficking, that their efforts to help the vulnerable and traumatised may not go unrewarded.
St Josephine Bakhita, pray for us.''
If you wish to help with the fight against human trafficking please consider donating to the Medaille Trust either through their face book or through Caritas Jersey
