There was a gentleman that has used our services on many occasions. Recently he came and was around for one evening, wrote a poem (which was common for him to do) and gave it to me. It was written on paper towel.
This is that poem:

7 Symbols of the Cross
1. When they beat him and spit at him, he knew how it felt when people insulted us.
2. When they crowned his head he knew our every thought.
3. When they whipped his back, he knew how it felt when people turn their back on us.
4. When they whipped his stomach, he felt the pain we feel inside.
5. When they nailed his hands, he did the things we do with ours.
6. When they nailed his feet, he walked all the places we have.
7. When they pierces his sides, he knew and felt our hearts deepest desires and pains.
