It’s so sad for me, because I love incense, but my parish NEVER uses it. The pastor didn’t even use it for the Easter (!!!) Masses this year. I think incense is one of the most magnificent and triumphalistic things about Mass, especially when you have a priest or MC who really knows how to use incense and lets the coals burn for about 20 minutes before Mass begins to get the giant, deep, smoky clouds.
One of the most exciting things about the EF is watching the priest so meticulously and formulaic-ly censing the altar with the broad, ritualistic swings.
I so wish incense was absolutely mandatory in the OF like it is in Solemn EF Masses. We very rarely see it.
