Saint Peter in Chains

Antonio de Bellis La liberazione di San Pietro

The Liberation of St Peter, by Antonio de Bellis. From Wikipedia.

O God, who didst deliver thine Apostle Peter from his bonds and suffer him to depart unhurt: Vouchsafe, we beseech thee, to deliver us from the bonds of our sins, and of thy mercy preserve us from all evil; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who didst cause thy holy Apostle Peter to be freed from his chains and to depart without hurt: Loose us, we beseech thee, from the bonds of those sins which by our frailty we have committed: through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
