St Francis Xavier (3 Dec 2021)

Jesus said, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.’ (Mark 16:15)


God our Father, who by the preaching of your servant Francis Xavier brought many peoples of Asia to yourself: give his zeal for the faith to all who believe in you, that your Church may rejoice in continued growth; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
