I was going to post a video of her by the Apostleship of Prayer, however, the narrator said the Italian Man who “bought” her was nice to her. From watching a movie on how he treated his wife, those around him, and worst of all Bakhita, I beg to differ with them, on their biography of her. No woman should have been treated like she was, by others. God bless her for her holy example of patience and forgiveness.
SAINT JOSEPHINE BAKHITA – Pray for us now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.
I’m a shameless promoter of monks and nuns. I wish I could join up. But, well, they don’t like raggedy people; fix er uppers! Or older people on their last leg. I think I’d fit in cause I like to pray. I can not kneel any more, and I’m grouchy – not nun material I guess. Why look a “gift horse in the mouth” they alway said about an older person’s worth.
If you’re thinking of “Pre-Planning a Funeral,” give these monks your business. They need it.
Here’s their Info on Their Ministry and Work
http://www.trappistcaskets.com ”This video explores 161 years of Catholic faith among the Trappist Monks of New Melleray Abbey, not far from Dubuque, Iowa. It details their journey from Ireland to Iowa, and shows how handcrafted wooden caskets have become an important ministry for them. The monks have become recognized for the handmade caskets and urns they craft in their shop at the monastery, often using wood that comes from their own forest. Every casket is blessed and prayed over by a monk, and each family member who is buried in a Trappist Casket is remembered with a mass, and a tree is planted in their honor in the forest. Many funeral homes offer Trappist Caskets to the families they serve, and all funeral homes in the US will accept a Trappist Casket ordered directly from the Abbey. Brother Tobias Shanahan, who talks with many of the potential clients making phone inquiries, views his interaction with the families who call as an opportunity to pray for them in a time of need. “We’re looking to make our living in a good way. As it turns out, we touch hundreds and thousands of people.”
