St Francis Xavier SJ

"May God, of His infinite mercy, gather us all
one day into that blessed joy of
His for which we are made. And may He
increase our strength, so that we
may labour in His service with the diligence
which it deserves, according to
His holy will."

From a letter written in Goa by
St Francis Xavier,
18 September 1542
to the Society of Jesus, in Rome.


St Francis Xavier died in Shangchuan, China, 1552.
