São Francisco Xavier

Dear List,
Saint Francis of Xavier was born exactly five hundred years ago, in Portugal, 1506, under King João III and Pope Paul III.
He is associated to the Jesuits and his work was directed to the unification between East and West. He was a preacher in Japan, India and Goa.

I could not find former references in the List to Saint Francis, but I remember postings on this subject.
I thought this image of St. Francis, with a sun shining on the pale moon of his halo quite suggestive.
The Saint's name brings together John (Francis) Shade and Kinbote ( Charles Xavier )
