Weird symbols

Lately for our tenth anniversary I have been in the church with my wife and although I do not feel a particular relation with the catholic religion I found two particular meanings in Jesus hanging there on the cross:

  1. Don't whine about your suffering.
    There could be so much more suffering that it is most likely that your suffering is not that hard as you may think.

  2. Be careful about what you do.
    You can easily contribute to big suffering with your words and actions - or with prejudice.
When we face different cultures with different rites and traditions we often tend to find it odd or weird. It might take many years before one understands the meaning...
