The Legend of the Dogwood
Once upon a time, the dogwood was as mighty as an oak. Then one day the Roman authorities decided to use it for the cross of Jesus. Upon learning this, the tree was seized with sorrow. But Jesus sensed the agony of the dogwood timbers over the cruel duty they were forced to perform. Jesus said:
Because of your sorrow over my suffering, you shall henceforth grow slender, bent and twisted, so that your wood can never again be used as a cross. You shall bear blossoms in the shape of a cross, and on them shall appear a crown of thorns and nail prints stained with red so that all who see them will remember that I carried you to Calvary.
