St. Pius X ..............August 21


His last will and testament bears the striking sentence:
"I was born poor,
I have lived in poverty,
and I wish to die poor."

St. Pius X

In my town we hace a church dedicated to him, with a beautiful statue-reliquary. Maybe some day I will go to take a photo of this, and a detail of the reliquary.

Its nice to hear about the good Popes! So many holy and great men and priests in our church and all the world talks about are the bad apples.
Thank you Micki, let us pray for our Holy Father Benedict and ask all his faithfull predecessors to pray for us and guide us.
