This is a tradition at noon Mass in Santiago. I finished the hike at ten, got my Compostela, and went to church. Years ago, pilgrims finishing the Camino stayed in the Cathedral. They would swing the incense as a way to fumigate the building. It’s now a tradition at the Pilgrims’ Mass. It represents prayers sent Heavenward. More later. The video might be a bit long but it was an awesome sight.
