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.
