Scourge of the Modernists, Model of Heroic Holiness:
Pope St. Pius X (1835-1914)

Today commemorates a most joyous occasion for all true Catholics: Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto, better known as Pope Pius X, was declared a Saint of the Catholic Church exactly 60 years ago, on May 29, 1954, by His Holiness, Pope Pius XII. The canonization came less than 40 years after the death of the holy Pontiff, who had passed to his eternal reward on August 20, 1914.

To celebrate this wonderful anniversary, we are posting various video clips of the canonization ceremony presided over by Pius XII, as well as a most rare video of St. Pius X alive:

In addition to these videos, we also highly recommend the Pius X Canonization Photo Collection.

The Rorate Caeli blog has posted an English translation of the Address of Pope Pius XII for the Canonization of Saint Pius X, which he gave following the rite of canonization.

To learn more about the great St. Pius X, his importance for the Church at a critical time in her life, his extraordinary sanctity, and his unyielding zeal for the purity of the Catholic Faith, see our Tribute to Saint Pius X, Scourge of the Modernists, as well as the many links below. It is abundantly clear that the religion of Pope Pius X is not the religion of “Pope” Francis.
