Instituto Catechumeni

This building in Venice, Italy was once called the Instituto Catechumeni.  Here an African Slave girl came to live and became a Catholic.  Her name was Bakhita.  When she was beatified by Pope John Paul II, the Holy Father called her the “Universal Sister of humanity.”  Several years later, His successor, Pope Benedict XVI called her the “Model of Hope for our times.”
