Rare display of Xavier relics begins in India


A public display of relics tied to St. Francis Xavier, the Jesuit missionary who exported Christianity to Japan in the 16th century, began Nov. 22 in Old Goa, a historic city in the former Portuguese colony that is now part of India.

The relics will be open for public view through Jan. 4. Organizers are expecting over 5 million visitors during the exhibition, which is only held every 10 years.

Xavier worked mostly in India, but in 1549 landed in what is now the city of Kagoshima, where he spent two years preaching the gospel. (Kyodo)
