The Effigy of Jesus

The Effigy of Jesus

We went to Cartago to watch the Catholic processional on Good Friday. The Cartago presentation is unique in Costa Rica because they use live actors for most of the characters they depict. They use effigies of Jesus, the two thieves and the Virgin Mary only. They use one effigy for when Jesus carries the cross and a different one when he’s crucified between the two thieves. It’s quite elaborate. And the bishop gave a good salvation message at the scene of the crucifixion.

Today is Lucy’s teacher’s birthday. She loves her teacher and her teacher loves the children she cares for every day. She often takes pictures of the kids and sends them to the parents so they see the fun things that go on in Kinder every day. She’s a really special lady! Happy Birthday Yolanda! We love you!!
