The Legend of the Donkey's Cross
"Bring me the colt of a donkey"
Was the Master's request
A young donkey was brought to Jesus
to carry him to Jerusalem. A week later Jesus was
ordered to be crucified.
The little donkey so loved the Lord that he wanted to
help him carry the cross. But, alas, he was pushed
away. The sad little donkey waited to say goodbye
until nearly all had left.
As he turned to leave, the shadow of the cross
fell upon the back and shoulders of the little donkey.
And there it has remained, a tribute to the loyalty
and love of the humblest of Gods lcreatures.
