Hand Made Ecclesiastical Censer

Comes with a sample of Incense.

The Censer is the vessel in which incense was presented on “the golden altar" before the Lord in the temple (Ex. 30:1-9) The priest filled the censer with live coal from the sacred fire on the altar of burnt-offering, and having carried it into the sanctuary, there threw upon the burning coals the sweet incense (Lev. 16:12-13), which sent up a cloud of smoke, filling the apartment with fragrance.


The angel in the Apocalypse is represented with a golden censer (Rev. 8:3, 5). Paul speaks of the golden censer as belonging to the tabernacle (Hebrews 9:4). The Greek word thumiaterion, ( Θυμιατό ) means “censer" or “the altar of incense".  The thumiaterion was was intimately connected with the high priest's service in the holiest.

Pascha Candles. Pascha Easter Candles are used in churches in celebration of the Easter Vigil at the Resurrection Service - midnight mass. The candles are used in the ceremonial lighting at midnight. At the Vigil at midnight, the church becomes totally dark representing the tomb of Jesus. The only light comes from an oil candle at the holy altar. A "new fire" is lit and blessed by the priest. The one blessed flame represents the light of Christ coming into the world. The singular flame is then passed parishioner to parishioner and the church becomes lit up with Christ’s light. The tomb is carried outside and around the church (or designated area) three times. Parishioners follow the priest with their lit candles Christ is Risen and the light is a symbol of life trampling upon death (the darkness). “The light of Christ, rising in Glory, dispels the darkness of our hearts and minds.”
