Hi, a question, how do you guys bring your icons/books around, do you all simply put it into your bag or? I want to bring my prayer book/psalter around and I'm thinking of wrapping it with a cloth to keep it clean. Would carrying a pocket sized book in my pants' pocket be considered disrespectful?

If it's a prayer book, scripture, or other spiritual material, yes.

Where are you supposed to put pocket-sized books, if not your pockets?

Would you put a prayer book or a Bible/New Testament in your pants pocket, lovesupreme?

Personally, no. But it seems that the purpose of manufacturing a pocket-sized book is so that people can put it in their pockets.

I suppose the shirt pocket would be a slightly less gauche location to store such a book.

It's as much a descriptive, figurative term as anything else. Just because a Bible or prayer book is "pocket-sized" doesn't mean we should be irreverent.  Tongue

A bigger question than the pocket sized issue is this:

What do you mean by 'how do you bring your icons/books around?'

How often are you carrying icons around with you? Why?

Other than a travel sized set, mine stay at home.  So I am trying to figure out if you mean on trips, or some more daily moving about.

I was wondering if people carry their books in their bags along with the rest of their things, or in another way. I didn't really mean icons, sorry for the confusion. Smiley

Why yes, I do. How else does anyone schlep stuff around?

It is customary to carry a small icon in your wallet.

When I'm on an airplane I keep that stuff with my clothes so they don't get damaged. When I leave for the monastery though I'll need to donate all my icons and books because it would be to much to take with me  Undecided  oh well, it's all part of dying to the world.

Is it disrespectful to have a prayer book app on my phone that goes in my pocket?
