Seton's Description:
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.

This title is also sold as part of the 5th Grade Vision Reader Set.

The best choice for a saint biography!, August 11, 2010
Reviewer: undesirable no. 1

I loved St. Pius X: The Farm Boy Who Became Pope! It was written in an easy-to-read format and is full of wonderful stories about this popular pope.

Pope St. Pius X deserves to have his life story read by all Catholic children, for it was he who fought against Modernism and enabled children to receive the Holy Eucharist at a young age.

Sancte Pie Decime, gloriosa patrona, ora pro nobis!
