Gaumont's New York office was responsible for this inspirational drama. Unable to adapt to the monastery life, a young, artistically-inclined priest heads for the Great Outdoors. Painting a beautiful canvas, the priest donates his masterpiece to his own monastery. A group of professional artists gather around the painting in admiration, demanding to meet the man who painted it. The Abbott points to the priest, who is showered with praise. After the artists have departed, the Abbott demands that the priest remove his signature from the canvas. "But why?" he is asked. The Abbott replies that the priest's talent comes from God, and only God is worthy of receiving adulation.
