What you see here is what I have referred to for decades as catholic voodoo. It's the cross from a rosary that reads, I am a Catholic in case of an accident notify a priest.

I bought it in a thrift store about 15 years ago just for the blue crystal beads and silver filigree stampings. A woman standing next to me at the counter asked me if I was a Catholic. I told her I was going to use the beads for jewelry.

That's sacrilegious, she exclaimed.
You're being superstitious, I told her.

Oh crap, my face is reflected in the top of the cross, there's NO escape!

I am an atheist in case of an accident notify a doctor.
