An explanation of Holy Qurbana-V

Blessing of the Censer


The blessing of the censer is a proclamations of the faith in Holy Trinity.
   
The chains on the censer represents the Holy Trinity.

The first chain represents God the Father. The second and third chains represent the human and Godly nature of the Son. The fourth chain represents the Holy Spirit.

The priest adds incense to the censer and grasps the first chain and makes sign of cross over it and says: 'Holy is the Holy Father'. Grasping two more chains he proclaims: 'Holy is the Holy Son' and finally he grasps the last chain and says 'Holy is the Holy Spirit'.
