Vespers

Vespers is the monastic hour represented by this painting of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Her banner carries the initial words of the Magnificat which is always sung at Vespers. Her Virginity is emphasized by the burning bush of Moses that is not consumed. Beneath is seen Complin, the last hour of the day, commemorated by a monk showing hospitality to an angel.
