Bakhita Day Reflections: Sr. Gabriella Mezinger, Solwodi Hungary


On 8th of February SOLWODI Hungary organized their 10th prayer event for all affected by Human Trafficking.

The event took place at the Sacred Heart Jesuit Church in Budapest, where those invited could also join online. The ecumenical prayer was followed by a short testimony of Fr. Peter Modga, former parish priest of Schio (the shire of St. Bakhita) who also brought us Bakhita’s relics.

The main celebrant was Fr. Szabolcs Sajgo SJ, who encouraged our Association from its beginning, to be the voice of the voiceless. His inspiring words echoed the message of the international prayer day, calling us to be transformed by God’s mercy to be God’s incarnate mercy for those suffering.

At the end of the mass, we received a special blessing with the relics of St Bakhita.
