Monks have stuff on their walls

Well some of them.

A poignant bit of the sermon this morning concerned how the priest, who is a Franciscan friar, had been moved to a room for a year before getting a permanent room. As such, he didn't bother to settle in. When his cousin came over, she remarked that he was living in a storage shed and proceeded to put up his pictures and whatnot on his walls. The point, I think, was to pay attention to the present. Though maybe I'm confusing that with some of Augustine's sermons that I'm reading?
