    So some sort of saint! Insults Hindus and followers of other religions. Calls them devil worshippers. Instigated children to attack places of worship. May Indians learn some lessons ,gain wisdom and rise from 1000 year stupor. Meanwhile Francis Xavier you were pathetic.

    St. Francis Xavier, please continue to pray for India; our ancestors who welcomed, obeyed and stood by you and passed on the mantle of faith to us. Though still we are small in number we adhere to it with fervor and devotion.

    Please pray for my brother that he finds the right path to college. He wants to go to Xavier University and i think that i want saint francis xavier as my confirmation name. Francis xavier is a very big inspiration because he does all of the things that a saint needs to do to devote their life to christ. Saint Francis Xavier... Pray for us!

    Dear St Francis. You are indeed my patron saint. I remember having a dream where a voice was calling out to me to pray to St Francis. Didn't know which so consulted with a very devoted catholic lady who advised me to pray to St Francis Xavier. I have never forgotten this. Today, as I begin my novena to St Francis ... I pray for a good stable job, help in fixing the roof of my house and other repairs, help for my daughter, good health and for God to provide for our daily needs. I pray this in Jesus' wonderful name. Amen.

    St. Francis Xavier, Your name is firmly itched into our minds, since you landed at Cochin in 1524, and baptized many, until your hands became so limp, that they had to be propped up! Please pray for us to bear witness to Jesus in all circumstances.

    Saint Francis Xavier is my patron saint,I chose his name for my confirmation name because his life was worthy of living and to reward him, God did not let his body to see corruption. He has obtained many graces for me. As it was his obligation to bring chritianity to the exiled, we catholics should learn from him.
