Saint Francis XavierDear Jesus, Saint Francis Xavier was sent to evangelize the unexplored Far East.  This was made difficult by sciatica, but he offered up his pain for the mission and he received many supernatural gifts, including prophecy, healing, calming storms, and raising people from the dead.  He baptized more than 40,000 converts.  I ask him to pray that the sacrifices I make will help to accomplish Your work.  O Lord, I offer up my sufferings to be used for the glory of Your name and the salvation of the lost.  Turn my pain into healing for others in remembrance of what You did for me through Your holy Passion.  Saint Francis, pray for me.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Francis Xavier

In this life, we find our greatest comfort living in the midst of danger, that is, if we confront them solely for the love of God. >>

It is not the actual physical exertion that counts towards a man’s progress, nor the nature of the task, but by the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken. >>
