PIUS XI by Lillian Browne-Olf


Email this review


As time rolls by Protestants and Catholics speak more and more of The Pope as one of the greatest figures of our times, Here is a warm and charming biography of the amazing man who wields such quiet but definite power over the restless European situation. The picture of him as a boy who loved activity and sport explains the tremendous fortitude with which he has withstood illness and suffering in his old age. His love of the outdoors and study explain the premium he has always put on quietude and peace. Admirers of Pius the XI know no creedal boundaries, his appeal is universal, Catholic in its true sense.
