A Story of Saint Francis Xavier
Footsteps of the Saints Series

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. Has Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur
