Additional Details:
When an arrogant soldier of Pontius Pilate plunged his spear into the side of Christ as He hung helpless on the Cross, a cruel wound was exposed. Out of the heavens flew a dove, and descending to the cross, the bird gently brushed - perhaps accidentally, perhaps designedly - against the wound made by the spear. The sacred blood of the Savior stained a few feathers on the dove's breast, and from that day to this, every dove of this species carries a few blood-red feathers on its breast - a memento of that incident almost two thousand years ago. Bleeding Heart Doves at the Rare Bird Farm, 10 miles south of Miami.
