A History Of The Mass And Its Ceremonies In The Eastern And Western Church -Rev John O'Brien A.M.

In the Oriental churches a free use of Incense is kept up all through divine service; and this is not confined to Mass alone—it forms part of nearly every exercise of devotion (Renaudot, Liturg. Orient., i. p. 183).

The Copts use it before pictures of the Blessed Virgin (ibid.); so also do the Greeks and Russians, both of whom are particularly careful to keep a lamp burning besides, upon which they throw grains now and then through the day (Dr. Rock, Church of Our Fathers, i. p. 209, note; Burder, Religious Ceremonies and Customs, pp. 150, 151; Rites and Customs of the Greco-Russian Church, passim, by Romanoff).
