Scholastica and Her Brother Benedict Waving

This fresco, high above the arch, is quite obscure. Until I looked carefully, I missed the presence of St. Benedict. He's peeking and waving from behind the arch, with his trademark raven flying nearby. Here, he appears to be older than St. Scholastica, and is either departing or returning.

 

The Benedictine Renewal Program traveled northwest from Rome to Norcia, the birthplace of St. Benedict
