Many anecdotes have been related as
to the personal characteristics of I'ope
Leo XIII. He was accessible and affa

consequently thousands of those who

pressions of the Pontiff. Simplicity
and frugality of living enabled him to
husband his strength and to accomplish
an amount of work devolving upon him
as "head of the church," which to
