Pius, as a spiritual leader of
Catholics all over the world has
no peer as a temporal power.
Kings are Important but most

there are so few left with any
country to rule that they have
become mostly symbols and titl

church to the contrary is Increas

the whole world, even non-Catholic,
looks to the Pope as repre

these religions were headed by
men as prophetic as Jesus Christ,

and teachers; no one man leads
any one of them.
