"Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted (and you yourself a sword will pierce) so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
"Merciful and gracious is the LORD, slow to anger, abounding in mercy. He will not always accuse, and nurses no lasting anger; He has not dealt with us as our sins merit, nor requited us as our wrongs deserve. For as the heavens tower over the earth, so his mercy towers over those who fear him". Psalm 103:8-11 // The Return of the Prodigal Son / El regreso del hijo pródigo / Le Retour du fils prodigue // ca. 1608 - 1611 // Leonello Spada // Musée du Louvre
