Many of you have probably had those "Ahah!" moments at Mass. You finally get something. It took a long time for me to fully understand incense. It was one day at Mass where the visualization of many images, descriptions, and bible verses came together at an instant for me to realize the full value of incense. It also took the right lighting in the church, as I saw the incense being offered at the altar, rising up slowly, as the prayers of the priest and faithful were being represented. What imagery!

Rev 8:3-4
"Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a gold censer. He was given a great quantity of incense to offer, along with the prayers of all the holy ones, on the gold altar that was before the throne. The smoke of the incense along with the prayers of the holy ones went up before God from the hand of the angel."

As to incense... These guys sure offer it up in Spain!
