Fr. Elias on the life of the Jesuit St. Francis Xavier who is the special patron of our Diocese of Indianapolis and so we commemorate him with a feast. Father outlines the extraordinary life of this missionary saint who perhaps baptized more in the short ten years of his missionary expeditions than any other person in history. He relates this to the recent document of his fellow Jesuit Pope Francis: Gaudium Evangelii, the "Joy of the Gospel" on the proclamation of the Gospel in today's society. Ave Maria!
