Joseph Interprets the Dreams While in Prison by James Tissot

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,

because the Lord has anointed me

to bring good news to the poor;

he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

to proclaim liberty to the captives,

and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

–Isaiah 61:1 (ESV)

St Peter Freed by an Angel by Jusepe de Ribera

Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress,

when he heard their cry.

For their sake he remembered his covenant,

and relented according to the abundance of

his steadfast love.
