Religious necklace

Relationship: Im/migrant

A Religious necklace is very important to my family and I. I got one for my communion 3 years ago. I got it on May 17, 2015. It’s made out of gold. My necklace has the Virgin Mary on it. I take it anywhere I go. I pray with it. My necklace takes good care of me. I got it from my godmother. I took it with me when I went to mexico in 2016. There’s different designs for religious necklaces. Some might have the Virgin Mary on it or some might have The cross on it. The chains can be thick or thin. I got my necklace with a box that had a candle and a little bible. Pretty much you get them when you are with baptized or you accomplish in doing your first communion or confirmation. This tradition symbolizes you as part of the catholic community and makes you part of the church community. This necklace is important to me because it’s something that has been apart of my life since the day I received it.
