World Day of Prayer and Reflection against Human Trafficking

“The Power of Care - Women, Economy, Human Trafficking” is the theme chosen for the 8th World Day of Prayer and Reflection against Human Trafficking. The event is promoted by the International Unions of Superiors and Superiors General and coordinated by Talitha Kum, the international network committed to the fight against human trafficking.

February 8 is the date, when we celebrate the liturgical memory of St Josephine Bakhita, a Sudanese nun, who as a child had the tragic experience of slavery and who has become the universal symbol of the Church’s commitment against trafficking.

On Sunday, February 6, there is a coordinated march in Rome from Castel Sant’Angelo to St Peter’s Square to participate in the Angelus.

On February 8, there will be an online prayer and reflection marathon.
