1. One of your best posts. As usual you mysteriously unite style with subject matter. Suggesting experience, memory and intensity when that is indeed our encounter with incense. Thanks.

  2. “Rather incense is akin to the sound of bells – we never know what it means, but it pierces instantly to our hearts, and awakens in us an unexpected joy.” I experienced this on Monday night when I went inside our temple (St. John in Memphis) for the Paraclesis Prayers to the Mother of God. I had been away from church for a few weeks and the incense was what awakened my soul to receive spiritual joy. You have captured this spiritual truth with beautiful, lyrical prose. What a blessing!

  3. Fantastic post as usual, Andrew. Thanks.
