THEME:   phrases containing letters T, H, I, N separated by other letters
Weakening, in a way, {& theme}   WEARING THIN   
Problem with pictures   REBUS [I thought the pictures had a problem]   
Occasions for shooting stars?   PHOTO OPS   
The theme clue says the phrases are "literally" wearing the word thin.  Problem is phrases don't wear anything literally.  Maybe if  the modifier were "literarily" I could enjoy the rest of my day.   
How can it be that I remember that Certs contained RETSYN, which sounds like a portmanteau for pepsin and rennin?  Is advertising so profound?   
Bk. Before Phillippians   EPH [that's Ephesians, but what is amazing that in my teens I was taught a mnemonic for NT letters, and now I know why --- if it comes up in a Xword half a century later I'd know.  Retsyn and Ephesians in one day!    
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
