St. Francis Xavier (1506-1552)

A friend of St. Ignatius, Francis was one of the founding members of the Jesuits in the 1500s. He was a very successful priest and missionary in India and Japan, baptizing more than 40,000. He traveled thousands of miles, most on his bare feet, to seek out and help the poor and forgotten. He was a great miracle worker, prophet and healer.
St. Francis Xavier, pray for us!
