  • O Beato Isidoro Bakanja (Bokendela (Congo), entre 1880/1890 – 15 de Agosto de 1909) foi um católico leigo mártir africano. Conhecido como Mártir do Escapulário, pertencia à tribo dos Boangi. Ainda menino foi obrigado a trabalhar como pedreiro ou nos campos. Converteu-se ao cristianismo em 1906. Em seguida recebeu o escapulário e assim começou a fazer parte da "Família Carmelitana". Enquanto trabalhava para os colonizadores em uma plantação em Ikili, foi proibido pelo patrão de catequizar os seus companheiros de trabalho que eram pagãos. No dia de 22 de abril de 1909 o superintendente, depois de rasgar o escapulário carmelita que Isidoro usava como testemunho visível da própria sua fé cristã, mandou açoitá-lo duramente até sangrar. Apesar das feridas causadas por este castigo, com fé suportava pacientemente e perdoava. Morreu, por consequência dos açoites, no dia 15 de Agosto, do mesmo ano. Foi beatificado pelo Papa João Paulo II no dia 24 de Abril de 1994 durante a Assembléia Especial para a África. Sua festa é comemorada dia 12 de Agosto. (pt)

  • Blessed Isidore Bakanja (ca. 1887, at Bokendela in Belgian Congo – 15 August 1909 at Busira, Belgian Congo) was beatified on 24 April 1994 by Pope John Paul II. His feast day is 12 August on the Carmelite Calendar of Saints, and 15 August in the general Church calendar. Isidore Bakanja is considered a strong witness to the grace of reconciliation that can be experienced between peoples of different races. Bakanja accepted the Christian faith at eighteen years of age through the ministry of Cistercian missionaries in what is today the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly known as the Belgian Congo). He was a very devout convert and catechist. Bakanja had a great love for the Blessed Virgin Mary that he expressed through recitation of the Rosary and by being invested in the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. His employers had ordered him to cease sharing the Gospel as well as remove the scapular that he wore as a witness to his faith. Isidore's refusal to comply with the demands of his supervisor resulted in his being brutally beaten and chained. As a result of the beating and persistent ill treatment he received, Isidore's wounds became severely infected. As his condition worsened his supervisor sought to keep him from the view of the plantation's inspector. However, Isidore was discovered and taken to the inspector's home for treatment. His condition had deteriorated so severely, however, that no further medical attention could help him. At this point Isidore told the inspector “tell them that I am dying because I am a Christian.” Missionaries in the area visited Isidore and urged him to forgive the supervisor. He assured them that he already had, declaring “When I am in heaven, I shall pray for him very much.” (en)
