Abstract:

Here is the story of the humble peasant boy, Giuseppe Sarto, who, through the grace of God, was to guide the Church through the turbulent years that preceded World War I. Reluctantly, but with the firmness and insight of a man of the soil, and with an abounding sense of humour, he took up the complex problems of the Papacy. True to his origins, possibly his greatest work was to reach out to the downtrodden and to the children of the world and bring the Church closer to their hearts.
