Globalization… and St. Francis Xavier

How, in the 16th century, could one of St. Ignatius' first companions, Francis Xavier, open up new avenues of understanding of what we are living in the 21st century? It is that he wanted to reach out to the whole world with the Gospel message.

The journalist Luca Pirola continues to search for answers to his curiosity about the Jesuit saints and blessed. He had been intrigued by a hall in the General Curia. There he saw a series of portraits of Jesuits whom the Catholic Church has recognised as inspiring figures for all Christians.

After talking with the postulator for the causes of the saints of the Society of Jesus, Fr. Pascual Cebollada, about St. Peter Claver, apostle of the slaves in Colombia, with Fr. John Dardis, and about Rutilio Grande, martyr of El Salvador, with Fr. Jesús Zaglul, he got to know better one of the first companions of St. Ignatius, patron saint of the missions.
