Come to me all who are burdened

When our souls are weary, Christ is the only consolation where we experience his love to the fullest.

The Season of Lent.

Rend your hearts and not your garments.Return to the LORD your God.

The Philosophate standing majestically in the midst of Dumbara Mountains

The massive edifice where the future priests are trained to develop their reason

Do this in memory of me

All the seminarians and priests are invited to be another Christ and to follow the footsteps of Jesus, the High Priest

Faith seeking understanding

Future priests are taught Philosophy not to question the Divine existence, but to consolidate their faith in God

SOLEMNITY OF SAINT FRANCIS XAVIER

The patron saint of missionaries and one of the founders of the Jesuit order, Saint Francis Xavier sought religious converts throughout Asia during the 1500s.
Saint Francis Xavier was born on April 7, 1506, in a castle near Sang├╝esa in Navarre (part of present-day Spain). With encouragement from his friend Ignatius of Loyola, Xavier devoted himself to religious service and became one of the founders of the Jesuit order. Much of his life was spent tending to missions in areas such as India and Japan. He was 46 when he died on China's Shangchuan Island on December 3, 1552.In addition to being a founding member of the Jesuit order—the Society of Jesus was officially recognized by Pope Paul III in 1540—he baptized an estimated 30,000 people. Xavier was beatified by Pope Paul V in 1619, and canonized by Pope Gregory XV in 1622. A famed missionary himself, he is now the patron saint of missionaries.
