Priests and altar servers swinging censers and sending clouds of fragrant incense wafting through the air is a familiar ritual in Catholic liturgical services. Incense symbolizes sanctification and purification as well as the prayers of the faithful. Incense has been a part of religious services since early times. Incense was used in Jewish services and adopted by early Christians. Incense adds solemnity and mystery to the Mass and represents the link between heaven and earth.
