Saint Josephine Bakhita & World Youth Day 2011
Madrid, Spain August 16-21, 2011
Father Jim Goode during a concelebrated Mass held at the Holy Mother of God Chapel-
Shrine of Saint Josephine Bakhita (NYC) on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the
Virgin Mary, called on the faithful to seek the intercession of the Blessed Virgin
Mary and St. Josephine Bakhita for participants of World Youth Day 2011.
“Saint Josephine Bakhita, we humbly implore you to be with our Holy Father Pope
Benedict XVI, the cardinals, bishops, priests, religious, and our young people who
are attending World Youth Day 2011. Be with all the youth of the World and their
parents and guardians, relatives and friends.
Saint Josephine Bakhita stand by our young people as they make the act of Consecration
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus led by Pope Benedict XVI at WYD2011. Watch over them
as they gather around the Eucharistic table of the Lord to receive the precious Body
and Blood of Jesus Christ our Savior.
Recognizing your great love for the Blessed Virgin Mary, please intercede for our
youth as they make room for Mary, the Mother of God in their hearts and homes.
For those who are traveling bring them back to their native places safely. For those
who are praying by way of the World Wide Web at your Shrine located at the Holy Mother
of God Chapel in New York City hear our prayers.”
