There Should Be Nothing Immodest Or Unbecoming In Our Life And Conversation

Located in the Sacro Speco Benedictine Monastery in Subiaco, Italy, this magnificent portrait of St. Francis of Assisi was painted during his lifetime.

The brothers hardly spoke even when necessary; neither did anything scurrilous or idle proceed from their mouths, in order that nothing immodest or unbecoming might be found in their life and conversation.
