DESCRIPTION :

St. Xavier's College¸ Mapusa is named after St. Francis Xavier¸ a world renowned Jesuit missionary from Spain¸ who was also an Educationist par excellence. Born in Spain in 1506¸ Francisco de Jaxu Xavier¸ as he was named¸ was one among the outstanding students of the Sorbonne University¸ Paris. Awarded his Master's Degree in Arts with distinction in 1530¸ he was appointed Professor of Aristotelian Philosophy in the College of Beauvais in Paris in the same year. It was against this brilliant academic background and his lofty ambition¸ that the seeds of missionary zeal were sown in him by Ignatius of Loyola a fellow student of the same University¸ who placed before him the spiritually haunting biblical maxim: ?What doth it profit a man to gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his own soul.? This influenced Francis Xavier to such a great extent¸ that his worldly ambition gave way to the vows of poverty¸ chastity and obedience¸ when he was ordained to priesthood in 1537. In 1542¸ Francis Xavier set foot on Goan soil. In the following year¸ he was given charge of the College of Holy Faith (Santa Fe) at Velha Goa.
