At the end of Pope St. Pius X's 1905 Catechismo maggiore, he gives a "Brief Notes of Ecclesiastical History" (Brevi cenni di storia ecclesiastica), which is not translated in the Catechism of St. Pius X. Describing the First Vatican Council, he writes:
Quote from: Pope St. Pius X3135 135. Il Sommo Pontefice Pio IX, dopo di avere in un Sillabo, condannato molte delle più essenziali proposizioni di questi temerari cristiani, per portare la scure alla radice del male aveva convocato in Roma un nuovo concilio ecumenico. Questo aveva felicemente incominciato l'opera sua illustre e benefica nelle prime sessioni tenute nella basilica di S. Pietro in Vaticano (onde ebbe il nome di Concilio Vaticano), quando nel 1870 per le vicende dei tempi dovette sospendere le sue sedute.

[3135 135. The Supreme Pontiff Pius IX, after having in a Syllabus condemned many of the most essential propositions of these temerarious Christians, summoned a new ecumenical council in Rome to bring the ax to the root of the evil. This happily began his illustrious and beneficial work in the first sessions held in the basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican (from which it took the name of Vatican Council), when in 1870, due to the [Freemasonic] events of the times, he had to suspend his sessions.]
 
3136 136. Giova sperare che, quietata la burrasca la quale agita momentaneamente la Chiesa, il Romano Pontefice potrà ripigliare e condurre a termine l'opera provvidenziale del santo concilio; e che sconfitti gli errori, i quali ora travagliano la Chiesa e la società civile, sarà dato presto di vedere la verità cattolica brillare di nuova luce ed illuminare il mondo de' suoi eterni splendori.

[3136 136. It is worthwhile to hope that, once the storm has shaken the Church, the Roman Pontiff will be able to resume and complete the providential work of the holy council; and that the errors defeated, which now torment the Church and civil society, one will soon see the Catholic truth shine with new light and illuminate the world with its eternal splendors.]
