December 3 is the feast of St. Francis Xavier. St. Francis was one of the first Jesuits and a close friend of St. Ignatius Loyola. The New England and New York Provinces of Jesuits put together this map of places important to the life of this missionary saint.
I left the Jesuits a year after vows, back in 1966. But I still hole my vow name of Francis Xavier close to who I am and still wear a Francis Xavier medal
