|Saint Francis Xavier Feast Day
On December 3, the feast of Saint Francis Xavier, many Catholics recite St. Francis Xavier prayers in his honor. They also wear the Saint Francis Xavier medal or the Saint Francis Xavier pendant as a reminder to live in the path of Jesus Christ. Saint Francis Xavier prayers remind Catholics to sacrifice worldly possessions for spiritual well being.
