Collect and learn! Tiny Saints are a great vehicle for learning while having fun. Each little charm is modeled after one of the great saints of the Catholic Church; this is Saint Francis Xavier. The Tiny Saint is made of durable rubber and affixed to a lobster claw hook, making it easy to attach to a backpack, lunchbox or jewelry. Each little saint measures about one inch high.
Saint Francis Xavier's story began back in the sixteenth century, when he befriended Ignatius of Loyola. Together, the two men and others formed the Society of Jesus, known nowadays as the Jesuits. It is interesting to know that after being sent to India, Francis Xavier was obedient in ministering to many people who were former criminals. He learned so well from that challenge that he continued to travel on to Japan and Indonesia, spreading the Good News despite persecution of Christians. He is the patron saint of Catholic Missions.
