Bakhita's Sayings

Listen to What Bakhita Says:

I have given everything to my Master: He will take care of me… The best thing for us is not what we consider best, but what the Lord wants of us!

I received the Sacrament of Baptism with such joy that only angels could describe…

O Lord, if I could fly to my people and tell them of your Goodness at the top of my voice: oh, how many souls would be won!

If I were to meet the slave-traders who kidnapped me and even those who tortured me, I would kneel and kiss their hands, for if that did not happen, I would not be a Christian and Religious today…

The Lord has loved me so much: we must love everyone… we must be compassionate!

I can truly say that it was a miracle I did not die, because the Lord has destined me for greater things…

Mary protected me even before I knew her!

When a person loves another dearly, he desires strongly to be close to the other: therefore, why be afraid to die? Death brings us to God!

“Be good, love the Lord, pray for those who do not know Him. What a great grace it is to know God!”

I can really say that it was by a miracle of God that I did not die, for He had destined me for BETTER THINGS.

When people hear my story, they keep saying, “Poor thing, poor thing.” I am not a “poor thing.” I belong to the Master, I am living in His house. It is those who are not wholly the Lord’s who are “poor things.”

"If the Lord will allow me, I will send lots of graces from heaven for the salvation of souls."

"I wish neither to go nor to stay. God knows where to find me, when He wants me."

Seeing the sun, the moon and the stars, I said to myself,”Who could be the master of these beautiful
things?” I felt a great desire to see him, to know him and to pay him homage.
