The pectoral cross is a symbol of the Christian faith, the first one we get acquainted with during christening as an infant. For a religious person, a cross is a thing that is always with him throughout his life. We identify ourselves with the cross as belonging to the Lord that means we are connected with Him forever: having accepted faith once, it cannot be changed or abandoned. So, a child during the sacrament of Baptism, at the time of his spiritual birth accepts faith and becomes a Christian forever, although he still does not understand the meaning of the cross and cannot perceive it as a shrine.
