St. Oswald - Meditations-Station (Monumentalkreuz)


Das Monumentalkreuz am Wiesengraben vor dem Waldgeschichtlichen Museum zeigt „Gedanken zur Bergpredigt“. In der Bergpredigt mahnt Jesus, dass nicht Sorgen und Kummer, Leid und Angst im Mittelpunkt des Lebens stehen sollen.

Die Kreuzarme wurden aus einem Bündel geschmiedeter Vierkanteisen angefertigt. Sie sind als „Dornendickicht“ gestaltet und symbolisieren die Nöte des Lebens. Die Bronzevögel (von Michael Dürr) und die farbigen Glasteile weisen auf die tröstenden Worte der Bergpredigt hin, wo Christus sagt: „… betrachtet die Vögel des Himmels… und die Blumen des Feldes…“

Von den vier Seiten des granitenen Kreuzpfeilers grüßen die Kloster- heiligen Oswald (von Siegfried Obleitner), Wenzel (von Leopold Wenzel Hafner), Katharina und Benedikt (von Ulrich Kupka) „als Wegweiser und Helfer zum Himmel“ den Betrachter. Zu Füßen des Kreuzes steht auf einem Findling die Gottesmutter (von Hans Lentner). In zwei Bronzereliefs (von Sr. Maria Sigmunda May, OSF) wird auf ihre Mitwirkung in der Heilsgeschichte hingewiesen.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
