(1835-1914)

Best remembered for his humility, Pope Pius X also encouraged the frequent reception of the Eucharist, and moved the age of First Communion from 12 to 7. Upon the outbreak of World War I, he said: “This is the last affliction the Lord will visit on me. I would gladly give my life to save my poor children from this ghastly scourge.”He died a few weeks later.
