    I owe to the saint in gaining my knowledge to lead a virtuous christian life though my studies dates back to the early sixties. Also I am indebted much to the members of the faculty and spiritual superiors. Routine and dedicated religious practices make one's life better and strong mentally. May the saint intercede for mentally poor students and make them useful to the society.

    I didn't read all but I saw no mention of saint Teresa of the Child Jesus as being co-patron of the missions with him. This is very important since God's Glory is expressed by the graces given to them by Him and which develope in a complementary way .

    Please dear God protect from abuse. Please heal Jim from anger and over aggresive violent behavior. I need work to be independant. He takes all his troubles and worries out on me.

    I have realized for the first time that St. Francis Xavier was a great saint all over the Asia and in Europe. The Counter Reformation was a big turning point in Catholic Charch. His enthusiasm for faith was important. His religious motivation was unmingled. However,Japanese took advantage of him because of new arm and drived him out because of civil war. The fact is tought every Japanese in high school. I think Japanese were not enlightened as far as internationalization when he was in flesh but Japanese kept up uniqueness. St. Francis Xavier, everlasting. Amen.

    From Spain, an area near Javier homeland. An impressive article, with only one exception: There is not any Basque area in Navarre. Navarre is Navarre, a part of Spain.
