While attending university in the 1530s, Francis Xavier became friends with Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The two men, along with several others, formed the Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits. Francis was sent to India to minister to Portuguese settlers and the Indians. He was a cheerful, determined missionary. After India, he bravely continued to Japan and Indonesia, spreading the Gospel amidst persecution. He died just before reaching China.
