St. Pope Pius X and the Question of Caste



The author Fr. George Nedungattu S.J. consulted the archives of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints on April 15, 2003 and examined all the five relevant volumes of the cause of Pius X. He noticed that no question of caste basis of Kottayam Vicariate was raised as a hurdle for the cause of Pope Pius X to sainthood. According to the author, the legend of the Kottayam-caste hurdle might be a gossip developed in Kerala.
