The Christian heritage of South Asia stretches back to the time of the Apostles, yet what do most of us know about the saints and holy people of these lands? The history of St Thomas the Apostle, St Francis Xavier and the evangelisation of the region is given here, along with information on how the people of these regions developed and defended their strong Christian faith. With short biographies of saints such as Gonsalo Garcia, John de Britto, Joseph Vaz, Teresa of Calcutta, and others.
