From early on, the Jesuits spread rapidly: to the Far East, starting with Francis Xavier in 1540, to North and South America, to Africa and eventually to Australasia. In their reports to Rome, they spoke about the different situations they faced, their successes and failures, their frustrations and hopes. this little volume tells the stories of a few of these Jesuits, from different continents and eras, in the hope that their commitment and struggles will prove inspirational once again today.
