Burning Thurible

Joseph Shaw
Thurible catching fire during Mass. The occasion was a Traditional Sung Mass for the Feast of the Sacred Heart, celebrated in the Catholic Church of SS Gregory & Augustine, Oxford. The celebrant was Fr John Saward. More about this Mass here.

Just lift the lid and blow it out and immediately drop the lid and you should be good to go. Sure beats possibly cathing linens on fire.

When this happens you can drop the lid of the thurible a little more forcefully than normal and it has the effect of suppressing the flames similar to blowing out a candle.

Teehee Either there were too many coals in the thurible, or, the incense was of poor quality. Impressive nonetheless!
