Do blessed items (like a book) become sacramentals? Here is why I ask. I have my spiritual books blessed but I am really hard on books. So is it a sin to be really hard on blessed books vs non-blessed books.
This is just my guess, so take it with a grain of salt, but I would say that the Lord is happier with a well used spiritual book thats coming apart vs one that is blessed, but sits on the shelf, never gets used, and stays pretty looking.
A sacramental is anything set apart or blessed, to increase devotion.
So if you get your car blessed, it becomes a sacramental?
Stove, I found a book for you. Your assignment: Purchase it, read it, and then let us know the answer!
You’re very welcome.
Don’t know, but had my vehicle blessed by my parish Priest.
I could not agree more!!
