Another stirring tale from the Vision Book series, this time a charming story about the life of Giuseppe Sarto, “the farm boy who became Pope.” Paperback, 17 Chapters, 163 pages. Pope Pius X was known as the “Pope of little children,” whose love for Christ and children moved him to change the requirements for First Communion so that children as young as 7 years old could receive the Holy Eucharist. Readers will be inspired by the life of this holy man, 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. This simple man who never forgot the poor will always be a timely example of holiness. 163 pages, Ages 9-12.
