SIMPLE LIFB O THE ]NEW POPE.
Day, Beginning at 5 O'clock, is a Round
of Exacting Duties--A ModCt,
Affable Man. 10
Rome Corr. in New York Sun.
Pius X. rises very early. When
his valet, young Sili, enters the
pope's bedroom a little after 5
o'clock the pope is almost always
up and reciting his breviary. At 6
he celebrates mass in the little ora
tory, arranged immediately after
his elevation to the papal throne.
The oratory is quickly described.
Opposite the window is a wooden
altar, and above it fastened to the
wall, is an ivory crucifix. Six
bronze candlesticks are placed on
either side of a modest tabernacle
of carved wood, gilded. The altar
rests on a rug which covers half
the room. In this there are also a
prie-dieu and a gilded armchair: a
wardrobe for the utensils is on the
right. From the middle of the
oratory hangs a chandelier of the
exquisite Murano glass. The furni
ture of the oratory is quiet but taste
Since the day of his coronation
Pius X. has never failed to say
mass. On the day after his eleva
tion, as the oratory was not ready,
it was thought that the pope would
abstain from the celebration; but
with the modesty that characterize s
him he-declared that the pope could
surely celebrate mass as the cardi
nal did, and going into the picture
gallery he said mass at one of the
altars that had been erected for the
use of the conclave.
When Pius X. says mass it is
usually served by his private sec
retary and lasts half an hour. Then,
having removed his vestments, the
pope kneels on his prie-dien and
listens devoutly to the mass o
thanksgiving. Next the pove breaks
his fast with a cup of coffee mercly.
The norning passes quickly. If
the heat is not too great Pius X.
goes down into the gardens, where
he likes to walk, stopping to enjoy
the coolness of the shady path or to
look at the magnificent flower beds
and the countless variety of plants.
Meanwhile he chats with the secret
chamberlain on duty and with the
officer of the Guardia Nobile. The
holy father never fails to go and
pray at the grotto of Our Lady of
Lourdes; he has taken special care
to do so in these last days. as he
wishes to associate himself in spirit
withI the p)ilgrimlage undertakeni by
Italian Catholics to lhe greatest
sanctuary that Franice has dedicated
to the holy v'irginl.
In the verdure of the splendid
vatican gardens Pins X. tinds a
p)leasanIt distraction from his cares,
and lhe does not hide the fact ;but se
rious occupations call him back to
hsprivate apartments, so that his
wak cannot last more than an hour.
In his study he finds the analysis
of the day's correspondence, which
is very voluminous and to which he
gives up sonme time. Then he
receives the reports af the various
congregatiois and gives an enlight
ened judgment on all important,
complicated or doubtful questions.
Pius X. cannot bear carelessness,
lack of order, of regularity or of ex
actneiss. Extremely conscientious,
he does not despise the smallest
Next comes Mgr. Merry D)el Val,
pro-secretary of State, and his holi
ness studies with him the delicate
and dIi ficult relations with foreign
governments. After that the offi
cial receptions, whether private or
for business, begin. According to
the day of the week or of the mouth
stated audiences are granted to the
monsignor major domio, to the car
dlinals, to the various congrega
tions, to the secretaries and to thme
high officials, but it is the special
audiences that tire thme pope miost,
though lie grants thiem rather freely
b*13hops, prelates, ambassadors, rep
resentatives, Italian or foreign per
sotis of note. With one it means
merely an interview, with another
a matter of business to be settled or
a question to be decided; he encour
ages, comforts, blesses all.
His affability has already won all
hearts to Pius X Those who
come in contact with him speak of
him as of a father. It suffices to
stand for a few minutes in an ante
room and watch those who come
from an audience, especially if it be
the first one they have obtained, to
see what affection the pope inspires
at once. The faces of all beam
with joy, many even weep with
The other day an old prelate from
north Italy, coming from an audi
ence, stopped, as is the custom, in
the hall called the Equerries' hall,
in order to lay aside the violet cloak,
in accordance with etiquette. While
the servant was helping him the
prelate was so worked up that he
could not hold back his tears. The
servant, rather alarmed, asked him
the cause of his emotion. The pre
late's answer was overheard: "If
you cotild have the happiness of
speaking to Pius X. you would be
as much moved as I am. That man
is a saint!"
Toward noon the pope dines; af
ter that very frugal meal he takes a
short nap in his bedroom, a rest
that does not last more than an
hour. Then he begins to recite his
breviary again and takes up his
other occupations. At 6 in the
evening, accompanied by Don Pes
cini, the intelligent and sympathetic
young priest who for the moment
takes the place of Mgr. Bressani as
the pope's private secretary; by
Mgr. Bisleti, the chamberlain, and
by Sili, he takes a walk in the
third loggia, where some unknowr
artist painted the geographical
charts of his time and where Man
tovani, Calli and Consoni decoratec
the ceiling and painted some epi
sodes of Pius IX.'s pontificate.
Usually when the pope comes out
on the loggia lie finds there some
20 persons, men and women, most
ly strangers come to Rome in order
to kiss the pope's foot. He talks
for a few minutes with all, aston
ishing all present not only by his
marvelous knowledge of facts, even
of little importance, but also with
the extieme kindness and paternal
afliabilty with which lie receives
WVhen the audiences are over, the
pope remains alone with his secre
tary, the doors opening onI the
loggia are closed, or, ini case for the
s,ake of aiir they' are not closedI, a
gua rd is p)laced at every entranice to
keep peclple out. T1heni the pope is
wholly free and walks up and down'i
talking with the secretary. Often
he recalls his owvn Venice, looks at
the paintings and decorations, and
above all never fails to cast a
glance over Rome and the suir
rounding hills. Viewed from that
height, the hills stretch out in a
tangled network, lighted by the
sun setting on the horizon under
a great canopy of clouds of gold and
The walk does not last much
longer, and the pope withdraws into
his modest pi9visionmal apartment,
taking up again his interrupt:d
labors till about 9; then Pius X.
takes his second meal of the dlay.
After half an hour lie finishes recit
ig his breviary and if he has a
little time lie may readt a newsp'Iper,
but never later than half past ro,
when lie goes to rest-and lhe neecds
