LEGEND OF THE DONKEY’S CROSS
“Bring me the colt of a donkey”
was the masters 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
By Mary Singer
All donkeys have the sign of the cross, depending on the colour of their coat, some are easier to see than others.
