Here's a thurible to end all thuribles

This amazing video gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "in the line of fire." You definitely do not want to be standing in or near the path of this bad-boy censer. The way I see it, if you're going to incense the sanctuary of the house of the Lord, really, really incense it, like these priests do.

Unfortunately, a few tourist lookie-loos can be heard tittering in the background as this thurible gets going. But I have to think that even they were impressed by the majestic symbolism of the billowing incense pouring forth from this no-nonsense bowl of fire.
