Incense at funerals

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: When do you use incense at funerals? Only at the end? Or throughout the Mass?


A: During the pandemic I’ve been using less incense in general because it causes some people to cough and spread germs. But in the past I’ve preferred to use incense throughout a funeral: entrance, gospel, and preparation of the gifts, for example, in anticipation of the incensation at the end.
