February 8: International Day of Prayer and Awareness

against Human Trafficking & modern slavery

Meanwhile, the portrait of St. Josephine Bakhita seems to be known in many areas of the world. Her life is an example and may open our eyes to the crime and the victims of human trafficking and modern slavery. Therefore the catholic church celebrates annually February 8th as a day of reminder and awareness. Many Catholics all over the world are encouraged to host or attend prayer services and devotions to create greater awareness about this disgrace of mankind – which is still present and happens frequently hidden in our neighborhood, sometimes closer than we would expect. Through prayer, we not only reflect on the experiences of those that have suffered through this affront to human dignity but also comfort, strengthen, bring respect again and help empower victims of today. Because they need our attention, our awareness, and stand-up against this kind of crime.

This time we may offer a common prayer vigil in several languages as far you have an interest. You will find the prayer material here to download → https://preghieracontrotratta.org/.

For more information, you can also have a look back on our post from last year or get into contact with the International Salvatorian Committee for justice, peace, and integrity of creation.

 

We count on your solidarity and support!

COP26 – Glasgow: Some more information

Here are some links for interested to get more information about the activities of Catholic groups and other faith communities around the GOP26 in Glasgow. It’s a pity that we from the Lay Salvatorians didn’t prepare something for this important event. I think there will be some Salvatorian people who would like to support such issues, especially from the Justice &Peace sector – but maybe at the next GOP.
