THE Thurible

Check this out!


This thurible from the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain is called The Botafumeiro (literally the smoke boat) and it is nearly six feet-high.

That is what it probably looks like in heaven when the Saints bust out the bowls...
"Then I saw standing in the midst of the throne and the four living creatures and the elders, a Lamb that seemed to have been slain. He had seven horns and seven eyes; these are the (seven) spirits of God sent out into the whole world. He came and received the scroll from the right hand of the one who sat on the throne. When he took it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each of the elders held a harp and gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the holy ones."
-Revelation 5: 6-8
