Incense the paschal candle

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  Do you incense the paschal candle every Sunday? Or every time the incense is used at Mass? I can only see an instruction that it is incensed on Easter Vigil. What do you think?


A:  I know it is popular to incense the candle as part of the entrance procession, but you are correct – the missal calls for incensing the candle only at the Easter Vigil before the Exsultet, not at any other time.
