    “Each of these crosses can tell its own story and what prompted people to erect“ their ”cross at this point. (...) These crossroads have been erected as visible signs and attract the looks of many people. The cross is a symbol of life. It stands as a sign of our Christian hope and wants to direct our gaze to Jesus Christ, who overcame death (...). The cross is part of our life, just as it was part of the life of Jesus. So I wish that many people ... visit the crossroads, whether as places of silence and breathing before God, whether as places of congregation meeting, prayer and praise of God. "
    (Text source: Dean Rainald M. Ollig
