Hi, Micki.
For some reason, it is not possible to enlarge this picture.

In the French/Spanish, the word, "roseau/cana," means "reed" or "cane."
"The Christ of the reed" (Fr.)
"The Lord of the cane" (Sp.)

It seems to refer to reed that Jesus is holding. Was He struck by it? Or does it refer to the Old Testament prophecy that says that "a bruised reed he will not break"?

Gosh, Micki, the suffering and submission shown here in Jesus' face is almost too painful to look at; but when you do look, you can see His eyes, ever raised Heavenwards. A lovely card, Thank You.
Best Regards, Lynneda

John - Thanks go out again to my faithful translator. I redid the card so it would increase in size. Don't know how that happened.

Lynneda - Your very observant. Thanks for your reflection.

D.S. - And I look forward to your visits. Thanks for coming...I owe you an know me, maybe I'll call. Tell your daughter I won't wake her up tomorrow morning. ;-)
