Ehhez a képhez igazán elkelne némi magyarázó szöveg, hogy a magunkfajta tudja, kire emlékeznek a gyertyák. Gondolom, őróla van szó:
Francisco was born on April 7, 1506 at the Castle of Xavier, near Pamplona in the kingdom of Navarre, Spain. Francisco Xavier who was canonized in 1622 is known as the patron saint of foreign missions of the Catholic Church. Thousands of churches and universities, worldwide, have been named in his honour and he is one of the most important saints for Catholics especially in the Orient and in Goa, where he is venerated as 'Goemcho Saib' or Lord of Goa. /From http://planet.time.net.my/CentralMarket/melaka101/stxavier.htm/
