Are there certain Masses (Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday, etc.) that require the use of incense?
I’m fairly allergic to the stuff, and have blacked out before in smaller Churches as a result of its use. I usually have to leave the building long before Mass is over to avoid it (which can be annoying when I want to stay for adoration), and I know I’m not the only one in that situation.
This is a question in two parts (well, 3 if you count the first question):
- How would one go about finding out when incense is going to be used?
- If I have to leave Mass well before Communion due to incense, and there isn’t another Mass without incense, what should I do to fulfill the Sunday Obligation? Stick it out and risk a dramatic faceplant?
