I'm in RCIA right now and I recently bought a nice crucifix and had it blessed.
Here's the thing I'm getting hung up on. It's big enough so that if people look at me they know what it is but it's not huge or anything and I love wearing it in plain sight. I'm a little worried though that I may screw up in public and be a bad example to those who don't know God or who have preconcieved notions. I love wearing it in sight though because I am so proud that I have become religious, especially Catholic, after years of not even giving religion a second thought.
Let me know what your thoughts are. This may sound kind of goofy but it weighs on my mind. I mean, should I continue to wear it in sight so that I do think more about how I represent God, or should I tuck it away for my personal use so that if I do something dumb people are not turned off?
