Cardeal Nichols usando incenso na liturgia


Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, England, incenses the altar at Westminster Cathedral at the beginning of the Liturgy of the Eucharist on Palm Sunday 2018.

The smoke and fragrance of the incense is symbolic of sanctification and purification, as well as of the prayers of the faithful ascending to God.
