BEAUTIFUL HOLY CARD WITH MEDAL FROM ROME WITH SAINT'S PICTURE AND CLOTHING RELIC ON OPPOSITE SIDE IN HARD PLASTIC CLEAR COVER--OF THE FASCINATING AFRICAN SAINT JOSEPHINE BAKHITA, ABDUCTED AS A CHILD FROM HER TRIBE IN AFRICA, AND ABUSED/MISTREATED IN VARIED HOMES. SHE FINALLY WAS SOLD TO A MERCIFUL ITALIAN MAN-MERCHANT WHO BROUGHT HER TO HIS HOME IN ITALY AND FREED HER. SHE BECAME LIKE A DAUGHTER TO HIM AND HIS WIFE. SHE WAS EDUCATED BY THE LOCAL SISTERS AND LATER JOINED THEIR ORDER AS A RELIGIOUS. SHE WAS GRATEFUL TO BE TRULY FREE IN JESUS CHRIST'S PRECIOUS BLOOD AND TO FIND FORGIVENESS FOR HER ABDUCTORS AND ABUSERS THROUGH CHRIST. SHE IS A REAL MODEL FOR ALL OF US. THE HOLY CARD IS IN ITALIAN. IT HAS A PRAYER ON BACK, AND IMPORTANTLY, THE ADDRESS FOR MORE INFO, BOOKS, AND OTHER MATERIAL IN ITALY FROM HER RELIGIOUS CONGREGATION: THE CANNOSIAN SISTERS. CANONIZED BY JOHN PAUL II. BLESSINGS IN JMJ.
