a service of the ninth hour, or three in the afternoon, the usual time of the Jewish sacrifice. Chrysostom exhorts to this service by telling us that at that hour paradise was opened for the thief, and the great sacrifice was offered. Some derive the term noon from Nones, because the sacrifice was often antedated, and held at mid-day. (See NINTH HOUR).
