I have some questions with regards to blessed objects…
When does an object remain blessed until? For example my bible which was blessed might have had tiny pieces of the paper that have torn out… would those pieces still be blessed and thus have to be properly disposed of? If they were not disposed of properly (i.e. thrown out) how seriously sinful would that be?
Also is it a serious sin if non religious objects (like a car, house) that are blessed are damaged deliberately? I was given a gift from someone ( a handmade bird nest kind of thing that was blessed) but pieces of it might have fallen off and are now in the garbage, recycle? Is that a sacrilege?
