Abandoned "Holy Bible" In Smithfield (Dublin)

The Bible is the most sacred book of Christianity. It is commonly titled "the Holy Bible". Therefore, people are hesitant of throwing away a Book that has strong sentiments and sacred beliefs associated with it.
In the middle ages it was a deadly sin to dispose of a Holy Bible in any way, but in modern times there is little in a church-sanctioned policy stating a preferred method for the disposal of ruined or damaged beyond repair Bibles.
If the Bible has been blessed by a priest or minister but you still want to discard it, you should consider a sacred burial. You may also want to consider asking your priest to perform a liturgy for the burial. In turn, your priest may consider collecting a quantity of discarded Bibles and performing one ceremony for all.
