I was in a bookstore the other day that carries a lot of icons. I actually knocked one over, and the bookstore clerk, although very friendly, came over quickly and picked up the icon, said a prayer, made the sign of the cross, and put it back on the shelf. I realized that I hadn't learned how to treat icons in my catechumen class. So how are we supposed to treat the Holy images? My guess would be, don't drop them, don't get stuff on them, don't treat them like any old wall decoration, but always treat them with respect as honor to whom they depict. Lord have mercy.
