Temptation of the Flesh

Sanctuario Rivitorto 

The bed upon which St. Francis of Assisi slept while at Rivo Torto

Blessed Francis betook himself with the rest of his brothers to a place near Assisi called Rivo Torto...were if, as happens, a temptation of the flesh at times assailed him, he would hurl himself into a ditch full of ice, when it was winter, and remain in it until all vestige of anything carnal had departed.

Saint Francis of Assisi
Celano, First Life
Chapter XVI
