Sleeve from a Cassock of Pope Saint Pius X

Sleeve from a Cassock of Pope Saint Pius X

An interesting fact about this Pope is that he was known to use the sleeve of his cassocks as a place to dab his fountain pen to make the ink flow more freely. This sleeve clearly shows the spots where he did this.

The sleeve is a large piece of watered silk fabric. It is a second class relic of a saint, making it a very valuable addition to the Collection.
