A Story of Saint Francis Xavier
Francis was a carefree young man ready to take his place in the world as a professor in a university until God sent Ignatius Loyola into his life. He was ordained a priest in 1537 and lived a life filled with prayer and penance to win souls for heaven. His courage and complete faith in God won many converts to the Catholic Church. Reading this story about Saint Francis Xavier teaches us what is important in life, choosing to do God's Will in all things and placing complete trust that He will help us when everything seems hopeless. Saint Francis Xavier loved God and the impossible become possible
