Description

1947 & #8211; 1972 PEACE CROSS IN THE AACHEN DOM

On Good Friday 1947, the men of the Aachen diocese began a peace pilgrimage through all the parishes in our diocese.

They wore the >> Peace Cross <<, which was designed by Anton Wendling. The sadly filled face of the Savior, who was "beaten" for our sins, is a symbol for the inhuman sufferings that people still pile up with their wars.

>> Christ, our peace << is the motto of the bishop of Aachen Johannes Pohlschneider. Let us pray tirelessly for peace and work actively to bring it to fruition. E. Stephany
