For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. Saint John the Apostle

Saint Quote: Saint Francis Xavier

 
 
I have not stopped since the day I arrived. I conscientiously made the rounds of the villages. I bathed in the sacred waters all the children who had not yet been baptized. This means that I have purified a very large number of children so young that, as the saying goes, they could not tell their right hand from their left. The older children would not let me say my Office or eat or sleep until I taught them one prayer or another. Then I began to understand: “The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

-- Saint Francis Xavier

  1. Thank you so much for this very interesting and good blog. (Saint Francis once came to Indonesia. He proclaimed Th Good News to the people of Ternate, North Molucas.) May God bless you for all your good deeds for the Catholic Church. From Indonesia, we'd like to share our living faith on Catholic Church and especially in living the spiritual teaching of Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort (1673-1716). Would you please visit our site? This is our site: http://www.ksmindonesia.org
    Saint Francis Xavier, pray for us.
    Thank you so much.
