Vespers: the Lighting of the Lamps

The following is from, Angels of the Hours.

The angel of Vespers has stopped playing and serenely holds the tambourine with the evening star on it.

This is the hour for us to stop too and find peace of heart through reconciling contradictions within us and around us. As we put the disappointments and regrets of the day behind us, we become festive in a new way.

This hour calls us to neighborliness and celebration. It invites us to light the lamp of caring attention for our neighbors in this dark world.
