Thank you for your response. Now I understand your definition of mortal sin.
You are certainly right about it probably not being appropriate for you to carry a crucifix. Please remember that I am a nun. I wear a habit. For many people, they simply see it as perhaps being a strange component of my habit. Also, the Philippines is a Catholic country. Parish Catechists go into the schools two days a week and teach catechism during the school day as part of the regular curriculum in the public schools.
May God have mercy on our souls.

Anyone who lives in a secular world which does not accept religious symbolism, can choose instead to carry a nail (porter le clou ordinaire xxx); just an ordinary household nail. Innocuous to the world, inoffensive to anyone, full of meaning to us. Our SD can bless it for us.
The nail reminds us that when we sin, we strike that nail into Our Lord's hands and feet. It can also be useful if the anger starts to rise, to feel the point against our palm, to remind us of the pain we are causing to God
