History Brief Josephine Margaret Bakhita, F.D.C.C. (ca. 1869 – 8 February 1947) was a Sudanese-born former slave who became a Canossian Religious Sister in Italy, living and working there for 45 years. In 2000 she was declared a saint by the Catholic Church. Her feast is 8th February every year. She grew up in royal family as she says in her autobiography: "I lived a very happy and carefree life, without knowing what is suffering. In February 1877, she was kidnapped by Arab slave traders, She was cruelly forced to walk barefoot about 960 kilometers (600 mi) to El Obeid and was already sold and bought twice before she arrived there. Over the course of twelve years (1877–1889) she was resold again three more times and then given away. It is said that the trauma of her abduction caused her to forget her own name; she took one given to her by the slavers, bakhita, Arabic for lucky. She was also forcibly converted to Islam. Saint Josephine Bakhita is venerated as a modern African saint, and as a statement against the brutal history of the European and American slave trade and its Christian endorsement. A strong missionary drive animated her throughout her entire life - "her mind was always on God and her heart in Africa" A young student once asked Bakhita: "What would you do, if you were to meet your captors?" Without hesitation she responded: "If I were to meet those who kidnapped me, and even those who tortured me, I would kneel and kiss their hands. For, if these things had not happened, I would not have been a Christian and a religious today".
