Tonight I was the Thurifer for Benediction of the Blessed sacrament. TOnight I had a bit of a problem…during stoking our priest got a little carried away with the incence. When he finished with the incence I am to kneel at the foot of the altar with the thurible and hold his while he prepares for the blessing. I decided it would be best for me to swing it while kneeling. I still about sufforcated from the smoke. Any tips on how to avoid another near death experience?
