Cross from Unknown Pilgrim

People have been known for going on pilgrimages during the time of Chaucer and they continue to do so even up to this time. Pilgrimages are not limited to a particular nation but one thing common among them is their belief in the power of the catholic cross to make their prayers come true. The cross shown here came from an unknown pilgrim who travelled to Lithuania to erect his own cross on the hill of crosses. While no one knows who put up this cross here, the person may have come from Germany. The wooden cross is like most of the crosses on the hill but the stone-like image of Jesus with its head bowed in penance can easily catch your attention.
