A Tunic That Bore A Likeness To The Cross

 Tunic found in Cortona, Italy that was once worn by St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis designed for himself a tunic that bore a likeness to the cross, that by means of it he might beat off all temptations of the devil; he designed a very rough tunic so that by it he might crucify the flesh with all its vices and sins; he designed a very poor and mean tunic, one that would not excite the covetousness of the world.

Saint Francis of Assisi
Celano, First Life
Chapter IX
