St Francis Xavier

St. Francis Xavier honored by the Church on Dec 3rd
"It is not the actual physical exertion that counts towards a one's progress, nor the nature of the task, but by the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken".-Saint Francis Xavier

St. Francis is considered one of the wonderful missionaries of Our Church history.  He is known as the "Apostle to the Indies"  and also the "Apostle of Japan".  He was of Spanish birth but spent his life evangelizing the world.  He died in 1552 and his body was later found to be incorrupt.

Today we ask St. Francis Xavier to pray for our families and the Children's Rosary.  May we be a docile instrument in the Hands of Our Lord and be guided in all things by the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Please consider joining our children in prayer tomorrow.  The Children's Rosary at Trinity Academy in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania will be meeting at 12:20 EST.  Our Children's Rosary at St. Patrick's Parish in Angels Camp, CA will meet at 4 PM Pacific Time.  The children always pray for all those unifying prayers with them.

Thank you all and God Bless.
