Saint Pius the Tenth.

Pope St. Pius X (Latin: Pius PP. X) (June,1835August 1914), born Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto, was the 257thPope of the Roman Catholic Church, serving from 1903 to 1914. He was the first pope since Pope Pius V (1566–72) to be canonized.

Pius X beatified ten individuals and canonised four.
Several that are known to me are John Bosco (beatified) , Joan of Arc (beatified) Gerard Mejalla (canonised) Pius the tenth was in favour of frequent confession and communion. Being of humble origin he often said" I was born poor, I have lived poor, and I wish to die poor." He was a great man with every right to be honoured. Saint Pius the tenth pray for us!

"Holy Communion is the shortest and safest way to Heaven." -Saint Pius the tenth. (The second picture below is of his tomb).
