The VI World Day of reflection and prayer against Human Trafficking

Today, February 8th, we celebrate the VI World Day of reflection and prayer against  Human Trafficking,  the day in which we commemorate the liturgical memory of St. Giuseppina Bakhita, a Sudanese nun who as an adolescent lived the tragic experience of being a victim of human trafficking . It is in her memory and on the proposal of a group of religious committed against trafficking,  that Pope Francis instituted in 2015 the world day of reflection and prayer against the trafficking of persons.
