Liturgical Awesomeness


I love the look on Benedict's face.

If anyone ever asks you why the Catholic Church is not only the true religion, but the best one, you can say 'Because we've got Botafumiero.'

If they ask you why we have a five-foot tall thurible, you can say, 'Because it's so cool!... duh!'

But I have always sort of wondered how come they've never decaptitated any pilgrims with that thing.

I noticed that the Holy Father didn't put very much incense in. I think when they use it regularly, they really load it on. I've seen video of that thing swinging down the length of the nave like a giant ball of smoke. Really pumping it out.

Like a sweet fragrance unto the throne of God ... or something.
