About respect for the Holy Icons, Part 2/3
This was not idolatry. Kissing the photo of
my beloved, I thought, “If I never see you
again in person, I will treasure these few
moments I have to see a photo of your smiling
face.” Love, that was all.
In a similar manner, if we have the diary of
a loved one who has departed this life, would
we not kiss this diary? Would we not hold it
tenderly, read it with attention, and restore it,
so as to preserve the memory
of the one who wrote it?
