Oh.  :laugh:  Some of us converts had literally never seen such a cross until encountering Orthodoxy; I guess it’s a bit of projection.  It’s nice you wear what she gave you.

Doesn't the chain get caught in hairs? Otherwise, nice cross  :)

Of course you can have it visible but that's a lot of responsibility, a lot to live up to. Since I'm not always the best example/witness, mine's under my shirt most of the time. It's a three-bar gold crucifix, by the way.

One December day when I had a beard and the cross was visible, somebody wished me a happy Hanukkah.

I can't remember not wearing a cross. Maybe when I was a kid. I've worn the same cross for at least 25 years (amazed I haven't lost it). 99% of the time under my clothes, unless I am wearing a polo type golf shirt, then it will sometimes come out.
