As a family, we watched Francis Xavier and the Samurai’s Lost Treasure which is available on Formed. In the movie he saved pearl divers, stood off pirates, and quested with a mysterious samurai warrior in search for a hidden treasure. It is a very entertaining video that really engages with the kids. CCC of America also has a coloring page here.
For dinner, we had stir fry chicken. I wanted something that was Asian inspired since Saint Francis did so many great deeds in many parts of Asia.
For the kids that are capable, copy the Prayer to Saint Francis Xavier.
One who executes both spiritual and physical feats;
One who gives himself up to be a part of something greater;
One who departs on a journey and returns changed.
Help me to emphasize the magis—
One who does his best in every area;
One who strives to be great in all aspects of his life.
Help me become a person with and for others—
One who respects himself as well as others;
One who performs deeds not for himself, but for others.
Help me become a leader—
One who persuades others to do the right thing;
One who guides others through action, not talk.
We pray to you for help, St. Xavier.
