I dont have a cross yet. All of my icons are laminated/paper.
Its kind of sad really.
Some hermits on Athos have paper icons in their cells. Also, there is a cheapy icon of the Mother of God going around the States that is miracle-working. It isn't the amount or the quality of Icons that matter.
I've seen a paper icon that wept after being anointed with myrhh from Chicago's weeping icon 22 years ago. On that same night, there were at least a few other paper icons that also wept.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
