St. Pius X: The Farm Boy Who Became Pope
From the popular Vision Book Series of saint biographies by Ignatius Press. This book tells the charming story of Giuseppe Sarto, "the farm boy who became Pope."-- from his youthful days of hard work and prayer to receive the education he needed; to his years as country priest, encouraging his people to holiness; through the steady promotions to pastor, monsignor, bishop, cardinal, and archbishop, which he reluctantly accepted but in which he always became the beloved of those he served; to his days as the Holy Pontiff, Pope Pius X, the only canonized Pope of the last century. This simple man who never forgot the poor will always be a timely example of holiness. Recommended for 5th grade students. 163 pp.
