Oh my goodness I have a story.
My grandfather was not a fan of the liturgical changes. When the new Mass came into being, our church also got a new parish priest, and he didn’t use incense at Mass and granda was so used to having incense at Mass. In fact, he couldn’t perceive of Mass being anything but that which includes incense.
When he asked the new priest why there was no incense at Mass and the priest gave his answer (probably what he was taught at seminary, God love him), my grandfather said “well we can have a group of men opposite the choir light up our pipes and cigarettes if it’s easier for you and the boys.”
