St. Guido Maria Conforti was an Italian bishop and the founder of the Pious Society of St. Francis Xavier for Foreign Missions, commonly known as the Xaverian Missionaries. Born in Casalora di Ravadese, Italy, he felt a strong calling to missionary work from a young age. Inspired by the life of St. Francis Xavier, Conforti established his missionary congregation in 1895 with the aim of evangelizing non-Christian populations. Throughout his life, he combined his responsibilities as a bishop with his passion for missionary activity, emphasizing the importance of evangelization and education. Canonized in 2011, he is celebrated for his unwavering commitment to spreading the Gospel and his foundational role in the Xaverian Missionaries’ global outreach.
