The legend of the “Jerusalem Donkey”.
After he brought Jesus into Jerusalem the donkey was troubled because he knew what Jesus was about to go through with his trial, suffering, and death on the cross. The donkey seeing the sad treatment of Jesus wished he had been able to carry the cross; after all, it was his job to carry man’s burdens. The donkey could not bear to watch and turned away but in his concern stayed nearby as Jesus endured his torture. God saw this and caused the shadow of the cross to fall across the little donkey’s back and he has carried the sign of the cross ever since as a symbol of God’s love. #pundadonkey #punda #jerusalemdonkey
