Roscoe, if I may ask, which source would you say is most authoritative on Bl. Pius IX?
Questions I have about him concern:
1) The case of Fr. Edgardo Mortara
2) His dealings with the Jews
3) Something in wikipedia that said something about his having his foot over an Eastern schismatic Patriarch, which strangely did not sound charitable (Although I would like to know what that's all about since wikipedia has doubtful information here and there)
4) The example he gave
5) The canonization of Pedro de Arbuez
