I forgot to blog earlier this week on the feast of St James the Greater. One of the best things about being Catholic is being in communion not only with the Holy Father, but with the Botafumeiro.
The Botafumeiro or "Smoke Boat" is the world's largest thurible (over six feet tall) and it resides in the shrine of St James in Compestella. They literally load it up with shovels of incense. It's simply amazing.
As an Eastern Catholic told me last week, "More incense, less nonsense."
