A Saint for those who are Prisoners of their Past

There is a relatively new Saint whose Feast day today (February 8th) is. Her name is Saint Josephine Bakhita. Although she is not at all connected to alcoholism and addiction, those of us who suffer from them can do well to pay attention to her. Those of us who are haunted by our past and feel that we cannot let go of the resentment associated with it can learn a great deal from how she dealt with her … slavery. Read on here:

A Saint for Those who are Prisoners of their Past: “”

(Via Truth Himself.)

In reading that blog post I can imagine those of us who may be trapped by our past can handle it half as well as she dealt with her enslavement.

She was not a prisoner of her past.

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)
