Nice cross from Lithuania

Cross from Lithuania

Pilgrims come to the hill of crosses to say their prayers, thanks and intentions. Others come here to bury their dead. Nice cross from LithuaniaTake for example this metal cross here which looks like it was really made to order with some vines growing across the cross.

The sign on the cross includes the date 1973-2011 much like the inscriptions found on the tombstones in most cemeteries. The hill of crosses may be a small patch of land but it has been filled with thousands of crosses left by pilgrims through the years. The cross is an important symbol for Catholics considering that the faith puts a premium on how Jesus died on the cross to save humanity. It is surprising that Lithuania used to be a pagan country and the last one in Europe to have converted to Christianity.
