On the top of the mountain on the card is a castle. In this castle lies a lame Fisher-King, wounded on two limbs. He cannot help himself, but is in need of help. The health of the king is correlated with the health of his nation-state, the land he is responsible for.
The first thing I thought when I pulled this card was, that is difficult for me to see Gods face in people. I saw myself walking to that castle, which I perceived as a hot, long, steep walk, unprotected for the sun. So how can see Gods face in people? I must do hard work to recognize it: I need to see through all the difficult behavior people display Gods face.
The figure of the Fisher-King reminds of Christ’s suffering, and reminds also of Christ as a helpless baby in his cradle. And of course that image takes us back to us, made in the image of God.
