A stunning Christian Roman Catholic religious art piece in art deco style is in excellent condition. It features the Evening Prayer of St. Augustine in calligraphy on parchment. Roman African St. Augustine lived in the 5th century. He heavily influenced early western Christianity and philosophy. He is the patron saint of brewers, printers, theologians and alleviation of sore eyes. An image of a figure kneels in prayer before the saint, or he could be invoking assistance from Jesus Christ himself. The prayer reads:
Watch thou, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, and give Thine Angels and Saints charge over those who sleep.
Tend They sick ones, O Lord Christ.
Rest Thy weary ones,
Bless thy dying ones,
Soothe Thy suffering ones,
Pity Thy afflicted ones,
Shield Thy joyous ones,
And all for Thy love's sake.
It is presented in a narrow black wood frame under glass. The artist has used red highlights as an accent.
