Loving God, who didst call Francis Xavier to lead many in India and Japan to know Jesus Christ as their Redeemer: Bring us to the new life of glory promised to all who follow in the Way; through the same Jesus Christ, who with thee and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
#FrancisXavier is remembered today. His Jesuit vocation saw him preaching the gospel overseas all over the East Indies, evangelising and establishing churches including Japan. He died in 1552. We give thanks for all who spread the good news of the gospel in our world. pic.twitter.com/hbmpz7snn8
