This booklet entitled "St.Bakhita " written by Ann M. Brown tells the true story of her life. It is only 40 pages long, but does have photographs and paintings of the Sudan in Africa and pictures of the people there. Josephine Bakhita was sold several times as an African slave. Sometimes her masters were extremely cruel to her. As the years went by, she was eventually sold to a more civilized family and her life became easier. She learned about the true master and how people were really free to love and worship him. She decides to be his servant and follow His teachings and she eventually becomes a nun. Her life was filled with unbelievable suffering and torture at the hands of her cruel masters. And yet she can easily forgive them. She is a true model of genuine purity and saintly life. St. Bakhita's life is a symbol of African humility and simplicity. There is so much more to her life that you will discover when you read this booklet. It is no wonder that The Catholic Church has officially canonized her a saint. I don't believe I could have endured a life of physical torture as she experienced.
