My poor cross
One of the women at church who is Russian had given me a. St. Matrona medallion. Until, Thursday, I wore it on the same chain as my cross. As you can see, it did quite a bit of damage to my cross. The facial features of, Christ are worn off as is much of the gold. I’m rather unhappy about it but after some serious consideration I am not going to replace it. It is my baptism cross. It means so much to me I can’t bear to replace it. Also, I’m sure it would have looked like this eventually… I just was not excepting it to happen so fast.
