Veritas et Sapientia-The Beauty of Modesty, Missing In Today’s ‘Muricah

Mandeville, LA – Editor’s Note: I have a special devotion to Frances de Sales and read him often. Today, Rod Dreher is reacting to what he calls a lack of “decorum” but what is properly titled as an expression of immodesty. Saint Frances instructed his monks about the beauty of modest behavior and the horrid ugliness of immodest behavior. – Mike Church

“Our Blessed Father, speaking of the virtue of modesty, and dilating upon one of its chief properties, namely, its extraordinary sensitiveness to the slightest injurious influence, made use of two beautiful comparisons: “However pure, transparent, and polished the surface of a mirror may be, the faintest breath is sufficient to make it so dull and misty that it is unable to reflect any image. So it is with the reputation of the virtuous. However high and well established it may be, according the words of wisdom: – Oh! how beautiful is the chaste generation! – a thoughtless, unrestrained glance or gesture is quite sufficient to give occasion to a slanderous tongue to infect that reputation with the serpent’s venom, and to hide its lustre from the eyes of the world, as clouds hide the brightness of the sun.  “Again, look at this beautiful lily. It is the symbol of purity; it preserves its whiteness and sweetness, amid all the blackness and ruggedness of the encircling thorns. As long as it remains untouched its perfume is delicious and its dazzling beauty of form and colour charms every passer-by; but, as soon as it is culled, the scent is so strong as to be overpowering, and should you touch the petals they lose their satin smoothness as well as all their pure and white loveliness.” From The Spirit of Saint Frances
