An ordained Catholic priest uses certain ritual objects in his practice including the chalice and ciborium, incense censer, and vessels for sacred Oils and water.
In the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church and some other groups, the censer is often called a thurible, and is used during important ceremonies like benedictions, processions, and marriage and funeral Masses A common design for a thurible is a metal container, about the size and shape of a coffee-pot, suspended on chains. The bowl contains hot coals, and the incense is placed on top of these. The thurible is then swung back and forth on its chains, spreading the fragrant smoke.
