The Feast Day of St Pius X

On Wednesday 21 of August it is the feast day of St Pius X. His birth name is Joseph Sarto but changed his name to Pius when he became priest. When he was young he was very poor. He walked school barefoot everyday just to save his one pair of shoes. When he grew up he studied hard and took risky choices to become a Priest. 

When you become Priest you can become a Bishop, then a Cardinal and then finally a Pope. After when he became a Pope in 1903 he was not greedy with all his riches, he gave all he had to the poor, so he was poor as well as them. In 1918 when he died he said these words, " I was born poor, I have lived poor, and I wish to die poor."
