The June 1 1938 edition of the Toronto Globe and Mail contained this reprint of a brief New York Times article on Pope Pius XI:
The article didn’t actually state why the Pope had lost or regained his will to live. Perhaps it was just that it was a nice day, and who doesn’t feel better on a nice day?
Naturally, I was curious: how much longer did he live? The answer is a little over eight months – he suffered two heart attacks on November 25, 1938, and then passed away from a third heart attack on February 10, 1939.
