BOX 135 BOSTON, MA 02113 Attn: Legal Notices Saint Francis Borgia by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari He was born Fraricesco Borgia de Candia d'Aragon in the Duchy of Gandia, Valencia, on October 28, 1510. Francis' father was Juan Borgia, 3rd Duke of Gandia, his mother was Juana, daughter of Alonso de Arag6n. Although as a child he was very pious and wished to become a monk, his family sent him instead to the court of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, where he distinguished himself, becoming a Duke when he was only thirty-three. In September 1526, Francis married a Portu- guese noblewo.man in Madrid, Leonor de Castro Mello y Meneses and settled into happy married life. They had eight children. In 1539, he became Viceroy of Catalonia. Francis delighted in com- posing ecclesiastical music and was one of the chief com- posers of sacred music in the sixteenth century. In 1546 everything changed when his wife Eleanor died. Francis then decided to enter the newly formed Society of Jesus, af- ter making adequate provi- sions for his children. He put his affairs in order and in 1551, renounced his titles in favor of his eldest son, and became a Jesuit priest, known for his great humil- ity despite his illustrious past. In 1554, he became the Jesuit commissary-general in Spain, where he founded a dozen colleges. After only two years, Francis was also given responsibility for mis- sions in the East and West Indies. In 1565, he was elected the third "Father General" or Superior Gen- eral of the Society of Jesus His successes during the period 1565-1572 have caused historians to de- scribe Francis as the great- est General after Saint Ignatius. He founded the Collegium Romanum, which was to become the Gregorian University, advised kings and popes, and closely super- vised all the affairs of the rapidly expanding Jesuit Order. Despite the great power of his office, Francis led a humble life, and was widely regarded in his own lifetime as a saint. Francis Borgia died on September 30, 1572 in Rome. He was beatified in Madrid on November 23, 1624, by Pope Gregory XV and canonized 35 years later on June 20, 1670 by Pope Clement X.
