    St. Francis Xavier, Dec. 31, 1543: “After all this he [one of the heathen] asked me in my turn to explain the principal mysteries of the Christian religion, promising to keep them a secret.  I replied, that I would not tell him a word about them unless he promised beforehand to publish them abroad [to tell everyone] what I should tell him of the religion of Jesus Christ.  He made the promise, and then I carefully explained to him those words of Jesus Christ in which our religion is summed up: ‘He who believes and is baptized shall be saved’ (Mark 16:16).” (The Life and Letters of St. Francis Xavier by Henry James Coleridge, Vol. 1, p. 162.)
