Saint Josephine Bakhita: "God created man in his image"

in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them.
-- Gn 1:20-2:4a

But above all, the crossing of the Red Sea, literally the liberation of Israel from the slavery of Egypt, announces the liberation wrought by Baptism:
You freed the children of Abraham from the slavery of Pharaoh,
bringing them dry-shod through the waters of the Red Sea,
to be an image of the people set free in Baptism.
-- CCC 1221
