St Francis Xavier

"I love St Francis Xavier because of many things- his zeal, his charity, his footsore journeys across the world to bring light to the pagan. But I cherish him chiefly because his nature was so affectionate that, thousands of miles away from home and his brother Jesuits, he cut the signatures from their letters to him and pinned them inside his habit, next to his heart."
[Phyllis McGinley, Saint-Watching]
