You can take it off. :slight_smile:

Bury it. Yes, really :smiley:


The blessing does not cease when one takes it off... one may take it on and off at will --freely.


Some people like to keep their medal or crucifix on at all times for one reason or another, but the blessing certainly isn't lost if it is taken off.
