So firm and strong was the tree that it was chosen as the timber for the cross. To be used thus for such a cruel purpose greatly distressed, the tree, said Jesus, nailed upon it, sensed tills, and in His gentle pity for nil sorrow arid suffering, never again shall the dogwood tree grow large enough to be used as a cross. Henceforth it shall be slender and bent and twisted and its blossoms shall be In the form of a cross. And in the center of the outer edge of each pctaj there will be nail prints, brown with rust and stained with red, and in the center of the flower will be a crown of thorns, and ajl who see it will remember . . . that, it was upon a dogwood tree that I was crucified and tills tree shall not be murilnted or destroyed, but cherished as a reminder of My death upon the cross."
