L'Apotre Des Indes & Du Japon
Ou Vie De S. François Xavier
Par Le Comte De Lambel

The Apostle of India & Japan
Or the Life of St. François Xavier
by the Count of Lambel

Francis Xavier (born Francisco de Jasso y Azpilicueta; April 7, 1506 - December 3, 1552), venerated as Saint Francis Xavier, was a Spanish Catholic priest, missionary and saint from Navarre who was the co-founder of the Society of Jesus. Born in Javier (Xavier in Old Spanish and in Navarro-Aragonese), Kingdom of Navarre (in present-day Spain), he was a companion of Ignatius of Loyola and one of the first seven Jesuits who took vows of poverty and chastity at Montmartre, Paris, in 1534. He led an extensive mission into Asia, mainly in the Portuguese Empire of the time and was influential in evangelization work, most notably in India. Although some sources claim that the Goa Inquisition was proposed by Francis Xavier, his letter to the king of Portugal, John III, asked for a special minister whose sole office would be to further Christianity in Goa. He also was the first Christian missionary to venture into Japan, Borneo, the Maluku Islands, and other areas. In those areas, struggling to learn the local languages and in the face of opposition, he had less success than he had enjoyed in India. Xavier was about to extend his missionary preaching to China when he died on Shangchuan Island. He was beatified by Pope Paul V on 25 October 1619 and canonized by Pope Gregory XV on 12 March 1622.
