About St. Francis Xavier

St. Francis came from a wealthy family and studied at the University of Paris. There he met St. Ignatius of Loyola, whose rigorous spiritual lifestyle at first gave him second thoughts about entering into religious life. Eventually, however, at the age of 28, he entered St. Ignatius’s new Society of Jesus and became one of the first seven Jesuits to take his vows.

Six years later, he was sent out as a missionary to India and Japan. He was ship wrecked three times, often spent days without food and was attacked by the Muslims. He ministered to the sick and imprisoned, taught children, and worked to correct the immoral lifestyle which the Europeans who lived in that area of the world were engaged in.

He journeyed through India preaching and working miracles, and even raised the dead to life. Francis had always dreamed of evangelizing China, but became ill and died on an island off the coast of China. St. Francis baptized hundreds of thousands of people, destroyed forty thousand idols in the pagan East, built over 100 Churches and raised about 25 people from the dead — all in a span of 10 years.

There are now millions of Catholics in the Orient who can trace their Christian evangelization back to Francis Xavier. He is regarded as the greatest missionary since Saint Paul. His body is preserved incorrupt.

Prayer to St. Francis Xavier

Lord Jesus, You have sent us to proclaim the Gospel to all nations,
and have promised to always remain with us. Look upon this family gathered on the feast day of St. Francis Xavier.

Pour out the abundance of your Spirit upon each one of our brothers and sisters especially on those who are called to ponder upon the journey made and to plan what has still to be done, so that we may offer a more authentic service to mission.

Grant that we may ever be faithful to the Gospel and to give an answer to the hopes which the world places before your church today.
Stay with us, Lord, when we gather around the table of your Bread and your Word, and when we walk the paths of the world side by side with our brothers and sisters.

Grant that we all find ourselves in heaven, our homeland, after having been members of the same family on earth. Amen.
