came from absolute poverty and obscurity.
Sixtus VII was the son of avery poorllsher

was abandoned early in life by a worthless

going as a tramp to llud an asylum in
France, he entered a monastery or convent
as a servant. His real worth was tcxin
manifested in his diligence, and his virtues
and Intelligence soon won for him the papal
tiara. Sixtus V had for a lather a poor
laborer, a common servant for a mother,
and a laundress of vicious habits for a sister.
