Xavier, Missionary and SaintDownloadable Video - 2016
This is the story of a missionary who died alone on a desolate island within sight of the land of his life's dream, unaware that he had forever changed the face and the race of Christianity. During the Age of Exploration, the world began to shrink as more and more Europeans journeyed far from home where they met the peoples of Africa and the Americas, India and the East. While the history of exploration and globalization tells of murderous mistakes and tragic ignorance, one man's encounter with the diverse world looms large as one of compassion, invitation, and grace. Narrated by Academy Award-winner Liam Neeson and filmed on location in the footsteps of the Jesuit missionary, Xavier: Missionary & Saint, features stunning scenery from Rome, Spain, Paris, India, China, and Japan as well as interviews with world-renowned scholars in the fields of history and theology. Through scholarship and image, Xavier commemorates the 500th anniversary of the birth of the most successful missionary since St. Paul.
