What is the proper way to have an icon blessed? I've been away from the Church for a long time, and now that I'm back, it's at a RC parish and they know nothing about blessing an icon other than praying over it like they would a rosary. From what I remember, you bring your icon to church and the priest puts it on the altar during Divine Liturgy so it's present during the consecration of the Eucharist (or in this case, it would be Mass since I have no access to any Eastern Rite parish), but I don't remember if the priest had a specific prayer to say over the icon. Besides, my RC priest said that in the Western Rite they are not allowed to put anything on the altar during Mass, so the best he can do is let me put the icon somewhere nearby to receive the blessing of being present during the consecration of the Eucharist.
Am I remembering correctly the method to get my icons blessed? Is there a specific prayer I can forward to the RC priest to bless them with?
