Modesty

Additional Links

(Latin: modus, measure)

Governs exterior deportment, refraining senses and members from all excess. It is a part of temperance, and its outward expression. The supernatural virtue rises higher, infusing into the regularity of carriage a spiritual beauty that makes evident the grace of the soul. It is a most efficacious protection against pride and sensuality. To govern the exterior it must, of course, originate in the mind and in the will.
