Overview

The decennial Exposition of the Sacred Relics of St Francis Xavier, popularly known as “Goencho Saib”, will be held between November 21, 2024, and January 5, 2025, at the Basilica of Bom Jesus in Old Goa. The incorruptible remains of the Spanish Jesuit missionary are encased in a four-century-old silver Mastrillian casket at the Basilica of Bom Jesus. Every decade, the holy relics of St. Francis Xavier are brought down for the Exposition. During the Exposition, the mortal remains are taken in a procession to the Se Cathedral for veneration. The last solemn Exposition (XVII) occurred from November 22, 2014, to January 4, 2015. The Church in Goa and Daman, along with the Universal Church, is preparing for the Jubilee Year 2025. Pope Francis chose the theme “Pilgrims of Hope” for this spiritual event. The theme chosen for the Solemn Exposition is “Xubhvortomanache Porgottnnar ami”/“We are Messengers of the Good News.” A special Logo has been designed for the event. The Theme and Logo focus on every Christian’s responsibility to spread the message of Love, Hope, and Peace to the four corners of the world. A special “Prayer” has been prepared to be prayed every day by individuals and families in their homes, Churches, Chapels, Small Christian Communities, etc. During the Exposition, an art exhibition on St. Francis Xavier will be held. Prominent artists from Goa and India have been invited to contribute. On the occasion of the Exposition, a souvenir in the form of a Book on the life story of St. Francis Xavier, as depicted beautifully on the Silver Casket in which the saint’s Sacred Relics are kept, will be released. A special email ID has been created so people worldwide can write to seek more information about the Exposition. The email id is sfxexpo2024@gmail.com St. Francis Xavier, known as the “Apostle of the Indies,” passed away on December 3, 1552, on Shangchuan Island, China.
