LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to the Catholic Herald, the sign reads, "No complaining!" and goes on to warn the "violators are subject to a syndrome of always feeling like a victim and the consequent reduction of your sense of humor and capacity to solve problems."

The Vatican Insider website posted an image, sent by an elderly Italian priest, of the sign and claims the Holy Father received it from an Italian psychologist and self-help author Salvo Noe.

The sign also states, "Sanction is doubled if the offense is committed in the presence of children. To become the best of yourself, you must focus on your own potential and not on your limits, so stop complaining and act to change your life for the better."

Pope Francis reportedly placed the sign up for a laugh.
