The Promise of Humility

Syncletica said, "It seems to me that for those who live in monasteries obedience is a higher virtue than chastity, however perfect. Chastity is in danger of pride, obedience has the promise of humility."

~~Madonna of Humility by Giovanni di Paolo (also known as Giovanni di Paolo di Grazia or Giovanni del Poggio) from the Sienese school (b. ca. 1403, Siena - d. 1483, Siena).
