St Francis Xavier and St Ignatius of Loyola were contemporaries of each other. They were Basque. The window in the cathederal depicts Xavier in India and Japan. The arm of Xavier made a pilgrimage some years ago and it did come to Alexandria, La for veneration. I di see it. I also, went to a Catholic church in Japan during Korea and saw the church he prayed. The second atomic bomb exploded in Nagasaki over a Roman School and church. I saw that also, in 1951.
