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.”
