You can find his story here.

Readings specific to St. Francis Xavier:
I Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23 (Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel)
Psalm 117:1bc, 2 “Go out to all the world and tell the Good News”
+Mark 16:15-20 (The Great Commission)

I do not want
to work for pay

but for the joy
of seeing
the delight of God
and man

when souls are saved.

No effort
and no hardship
is too great
for this reward.

What reward am I seeking?
How much effort am I willing to put into it?
