Description: A preacher addresses a congregation; through the window, a family shares a meal and a clergyman ministers to the sick. The Latin superscription reads, "Why there is so little profit in so many sermons," and the text below, "Why do few emerge, having been swallowed up by a wave of vice? Not having lifted their hands, they only care to learn about good things.".
