Our patron saint, St. Francis Xavier is the man who has touched the Lord Jesus Christ with his hands. His love for God and devotion to his mother inspired him to go on a journey to spread the Good News of Christ. He travelled far and wide, even beyond sea, where no one else had ever been before in those days. He built churches at many places where there was none before and converted many heathens into Christians.
It is said that St. Francis Xavier had once asked Mother Mary to bless him with a sign so that he would know whether he was doing his job well or not? And what did our Blessed Mother give him? She gave him a cross (her own personal possession) which she had worn around her neck during her life time on earth!
You too can get blessings from this miraculous cross by simply praying this novena prayer every day for nine consecutive days (or three weeks) if possible but at least once in your lifetime:

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the most sublime act of worship that we can offer to God. It is also a perfect sacrifice, because it re-presents on earth all the daily sacrifices which were offered by Christ during His life on earth. Hence it is called the New Law, which took its place when our Lord instituted this new and eternal sacrifice in His last Supper.
The Mass (also called Divine Liturgy) is said as part of our Catholic Church’s liturgical worship; it brings us into union with God through Jesus Christ and strengthens us for service in his name. During Mass we celebrate Jesus’ Pascha (Passover), his saving death and resurrection from death. We listen to readings from Scripture related to Jesus’ Pascha; sing songs from our tradition that bring us into union with Him; witness how he lives among us through ordained ministers who serve as symbols of Christ’s presence among us today; receive communion—the Body and Blood of Christ—in a way appropriate for each particular rite or ritual within Catholicism

- Desire to feed His sacred Heart by winning souls to Him. Penetrated with this ardent love and having been endowed by Him with extraordinary powers, Francis Xavier went forth from his native land to preach the Gospel in distant lands, enduring all manner of hardships and dangers. He was the first apostle of India, China and Japan; he laboured indefatigably in these countries for many years until at length his health was broken down by sicknesses, hardships and persecutions; but even then he did not rest until he had won over thousands of converts. To him alone is due the honour of introducing Christianity into Japan; hence we pay homage to him as St Francis Xavier – Apostle of Asia!

St. Francis Xavier, the patron saint of lottery prayer and strength prayer, is a Roman Catholic saint. His feast day is October 3rd.
Saint Francis Xavier was born Francisco de Javier on April 7th 1506 in Navarre, Spain to parents who were members of the Basque nobility. When he was ten years old his mother died and his father sent him to study at university in Paris when he was fifteen years old. In 1526 he traveled with his uncle Ignatius Loyola (later founder of the Jesuits) to Rome where they heard Mass with Pope Clement VII before beginning their studies for priesthood at Louvain University in Belgium later that year. During this time he also studied Greek and Hebrew with great success becoming fluent within months rather than years like most scholars do so quickly mastering Greek literature which required mastery over Latin as well as ancient Greek itself; this skill would serve him well later when working through religious texts from both traditions simultaneously during missions abroad where missionaries could write letters home filled with discussion about biblical passages which may have been obscure even among those who had been studying them since childhood but became clear once translated into Spanish or Portuguese depending on location/language usage
