Today we reached one of the focus points on the Camino.
On the top of a mountain there is a tall wooden pole with an iron cross on top, hence the name Iron Cross. I don’t know how long it has been there – something I will research. The cross was a touching moment in the film, “The Way.”
People stop at the cross and leave a momento and offer up a prayer, a chance to stop and reflect. It makes me think how privileged we are able to commune with God through Christ so easily. We don’t have to climb a mountain or offer a sacrifice.
How often we forget.
