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.
St Francis Xavier proclaims the saving power of the Cross of Christ, as his new converts smash their former idols. This painting is in St Peter’s church at the Jesuit Stonyhurst College in Lancashire. Today (3 Dec) is his feast day. https://t.co/Rwxs9MH29t
