One of our congregation shared this old folk telling of the Passion using a catfish bone.
They wished to share it with you all.
The words are from Conrad S Lantz
Legend of the Cat Fish Bone.
Of all the fished in the sea
The catfish pictures the Lord’s misery
In its lowly body you will find
The body on the cross outlined
The hilt of sword is well defined
Look at the back of the Catfish bone
A Roman shield is clearly shown
And if you shake the bony Cross
You’ll hear the dice that once was tossed
To gather up the Blood stained dress –
And if you hear it you’ll be Blessed.
Below are a photo of the front & back of a Catfish bone.
