The recounting of the service rendered by Guiseppe Sarto as priest, bishop, finally as Pope is of especial interest in Catholic circles because of the is afoot to bring about his elevation to sainthood. This effort is being made on basis of miracles of healing which are attributed to him both before and after However, the life of this Catholic dignitary in itself qualifies him for standards of his church. Born in a poor peasant family, Sarto forged a brilliant for himself by his intellectual brilliance and the sheer goodness of his character one of the greatest Popes of the modern era, he was, nevertheless, always first most a spiritual leader. This life story is simply and interestingly written.
