Active and Contemplative Joseph. On the far left the saint sleeps as an angel warns him of the threat of Herod. The scroll reads “Take the child and his mother and go into Egypt” Matthew 2:13. Joseph then appears walking with Mary, carrying the meager family possessions on his staff, explaining to Mary and an attentive Jesus why they must flee. The boy in the front might be the owner of the donkey.
