Burning old holy items

Recommended Posts

Kateri89

Ok so I have a question.  I have old palms from years past as well as old Christmas cards (not blessed but I still feel guilty throwing them away with pictures of the holy family on them) and different religious items like this that I need to dispose of.  

I know the recommendation is to burn or bury them.  The problem is, I live in an apartment.  I don’t have a yard to bury anything and I don’t have a fireplace or fire pit to burn anything.  How can I dispose of them?  Is there a safe way to burn them in my apartment in some sort of tin or something without setting the whole building on fire?  Thanks in advance!

Do you have a city park where there are bbq stations or grills?  We used that with the Boy Scouts when they needed to burn a flag that had become tattered. Don’t do it in an enclosed apartment. A coffee can in the park works too so long as you aren’t in an area with a burn ban.

Since lent is coming up soon, many churches will take back old palms to use for Ash Wednesday. Doesn't help with the Christmas cards, but it does with something that's actually blessed.
