Cross And Chapel

Nowiny Horynieckie, Poland view map

This shrine - as the legend says - was built in 1672 by the Polish released from Turkish slavery by John III Sobieski.
The writing on the cross says "Save us, Lord, from pestilence, hunger, fire and war". It's a part of the prayer from the old times.

Excellent composition. Perhaps today the prayer should have "politicians" added to it.
