She may be con- tacted at {978) 4 70-8183 or Saint Josephine Margaret Bakhita by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Josephine was born around the year 1869 in the western Sudanese region of Darfur. She belonged to the Daju people. Her well-respected and reason- ably prosperous father was brother of the village chief. She was surrounded by a loving family of three brothers and three sisters, as she says in her autobiography: "I lived a very happy and carefree life, without knowing suffering." Josephine was kidnapped by Arab slave traders sometime be- tween the ages of seven to nine, probably in February 1877, who already had kidnapped her elder sister two years earlier. She was forced to walk barefoot about 600 miles to El Obeid and was already bought and sold twice before she arrived. Over the course of 12 years (1877-1889), she was resold three more times and then given away. It is said that the trauma of her abduc- tion caused her to forget her own name; she took one given to hdr by the slavers, Bakhita, Arabic for fortunate. She was also forcibly converted to Islam. As a slave, she experienced cruelty and humiliation. In 1883, Bakhita was bought by the Italian Consul of Sudan, Callisto Legnani. In the Consul's residence, Bakhita experienced peace, warmth, and moments of joy. Two years later, he took Josephine to Italy and offered her service to his friend Augusto Michieli. Bakhita became baby- sitter to Mimmina Michieli, whom she accompanied to Venice's Institute of the Cat- echumens, run by the Canos- sian Sisters. While Mimmina was being instructed, Jose- phine felt drawn to the Catholic Church. She was baptized and confirmed in 1890, taking the name Josephine. When the Michielis returned from Africa and wanted to take Mimmina and Josephine back with them, the future saint refused to go. During the ensu- ing court case, the Canossian sisters and the patriarch of Venice intervened on Jose- phine's behalf. The judge concluded that since slavery was illegal in Italy, she had actually been free since ar- rival. Bakhita remained in the catechumenate where she expe- rienced the caU to be religious and to give herself to the Lord in the institute of St. Magdalene of Canossa. On December 8, 1896, Josephine Bakhita was consecrated forever to God, whom she called by the name of'the Master." For the next 50 years, this humble Daughter of Charity, a true witness to the love of God, lived in the Schio community, involved in various services, including cooking, sewing, embroidery, and at- tending to the door. Mother Bakhita passed away on February 8, 1947, at the Canossian Convent in Schio, surrounded by the sisters. Knowing her reputation for sanctity, a crowd quickly gath- ered at the convent to ask for her protection from heaven. Josephine Bakhita was canonized on October 1, 2000, by Pope John Paul II. The fame of her sanctity has spread to all the continents and many receive graces through her intercession. Josephine Bakhita's Feast Day is February 8th.

L-R: Deanne DiRuzza, Annette Luongo, Angelica Addivinola, Attorney Frank Addivinola, Marie D'Eramo, and Dr. Dean Saluti. The Sons of Italy Culture/ Historical Commission hosted a Sunday afternoon at Bos- ton's famous Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum on April 24th. Approximately 20 OSIA mem- bers from Lodges throughout the State enjoyed this event. It proved to be an afternoon that *delighted our senses" -- taste, sight, and sound. What an experience! On Sunday, you can park at meters in Boston for free. So, we had no problem parking our cars right in front of the Museum. The Museum's gour- met restaurant, ~Caf6 G," was right near the entrance in the new wing. Many of us started our afternoon with brunch at the Caf6 and, of course, some of us bought bottles of wine. It was difficult to leave this great eating and dfinldng experience, but we had to move on to tour the Museum. We learned that there had been winter roof damage that had caused leaks on the second floor of the old building. This was the floor that displayed unique artwork of the Great Masters. What the Museum Curators had done was to move these famous paintings to a wall in the new wing, rifling this display "Off the Wall." This was interesting because Mrs. Gardner's will dictated that no piece of her artwork was ever to be moved[ The water damage, however, required a temporary relocation. The "Off the Wall" display had no rope barriers, and we were able to go inches away from a Rembrandt, so close that we could see the brushstrokes. This was amazing[ The Gardner Museum is so big, and filled with so many different artifacts and paintings, that it takes hours to go through it. Some of us could not take it all in because we attended a piano concert in the Museum's new modern- istic concert hall. This hall has many levels to view the performers, and boasts of excellent acoustics. The program included a sonata by the Italian composer Scarlatti. The concert was outstanding. After our meal, our tour of the Museum, and the concert, we were %ulturally exhausted." Many of us met in the Museum's outdoor garden for an "in- stant replay" of everything that we had experienced. Many thanks to Culture Commis- sioners Marie D%ramo, Annette Luongo, and Kathy Cammarata, from the Renaissance Lodge, for organizing this great event. We may have to repeat this event next year, based on popular demand.
