"At the Last Judgment I will not be asked whether I satisfactorily practiced asceticism, nor how many bows I have made before the divine altar. I will be asked whether I fed the hungry, clothed the naked, visited the sick, and the prisoner in his jail. That is all I will be asked." - Sv. Maria Skobotsova

Here's an example of a High Cross and its different panels and what they are. They tend to depict narratives from the Bible. One that seems popular is two people wrestling which could be Cain and Abel, Jacob wrestling with the Angel, something to do with a local historical event, etc. Its not always really clear.
