Saint Francis Xavier
Feast Day -- December 3
Saint Francis Xavier's family expected him to become a teacher. Instead, he listened to God's call to become a priest and a missionary. He was one of the first people to follow Saint Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order. Francis served God by preaching the Gospel in India, Indonesia, and Japan. When Francis didn't know the language of the people he was with, he taught by using pictures of Mary and Jesus.
Patron of missionaries and foreign missions. Saint Francis Xavier began the first Christian mission in Japan.
Eternal God, creator of all things, remember that you alone have created us, whom you have made according to your Image and likeness. (Saint Francis' prayer.)
