The label at the
mission identifies the saints holding the Virgin's cloak as Joseph (note the lily stalk) and Teresa of Avila (in the habit of a Carmelite
nun). St. Joseph was the patron saint of the first convent established
by Teresa as part of her reform of the Carmelite order.
Below the main
figures, the souls in Purgatory
call on the Virgin for her intercession.
