In the sixth picture from the top, it makes a mockery of Christ's suffering and Paulacrucian spirituality. Our Lord, in his human state, could not take his hands off the Cross to embrace anyone. This picture depicts that he was merely going through the motions of suffering. His suffering was real.

Hi Gerry,
Thanks for your comment. Although I don't know the artist, I believe the inspiration behind the painting is Jesus' sacrificial love for Paul and all of us, remembering how He loved us to His death on the Cross. He is, after all, still nailed to the Cross in the photo.
-At least, that is what I get out of the picture when I look at it...

May God bless you and yours,
Glenn Dallaire
