Last Sunday I was confirmed into the Catholic church and received not only spiritual gifts of the sacrament, but physical gifts from friends as well. One of them was from priest who conducted my RCIA. In honor of my Irish heritage, I took Brigid as my patron saint and confirmation name. Knowing this, he gave me a large St. Brigid cross (about 6" and made of pewter) that has a ring on it. I see other large crosses like this are given as gifts at Confirmation. What I am unsure of is what to do with it? Is it jewelry? Wall art? Is there a tradition I'm unaware of that would explain this gift?
Thank you in advance for your responses. :)
