Neck Cross: Why do we wear it?

The cross dominates the whole life of Christians throughout the life of our Church as an instrument of sacrifice, salvation and grace.

The Cross of the Lord is a symbol and testimony of faith for Orthodox Christians. On it, Jesus with the immeasurable love of His salvation acquired the people.

In the sight of the cross, the devil cries and his temptations cannot touch the Christians.

That is why Christians wear a cross on our neck as a testimony of the Orthodox faith, as a symbol of Jesus’ sacrifice but also as a protection.
