A Burning Heart for Souls: St. Francis Xavier

In January 2018, a precious relic of St. Francis Xavier - his right forearm which he used to baptize more than 100,000 people - was on tour across Canada. One of the churches even attracted 13,000 people to venerate the relic in one day. Fountain of Grace takes a look at the life of St. Francis Xavier, as well as Catholic Christian Outreach - the group of modern missionaries that organized the relic pilgrimage.
