The painting “represents Faith, encouraged by Hope and inspired by Love, about to sheathe her sword as she cleanes her blood-stained foot in a stream, and turns from the sight of the smoking ruins - the signs of her handiwork through the land." — Sarah Cecilia Harrison, Municipal Gallery of Art Illustrated Catalogue, 1908.
