“INCENSE even of itself is fine and sweet-smelling,
but gives particular evidence of its fragrance at the time when it is applied to the fire; so too is prayer fine of itself, but becomes finer and more
sweet-smelling when offered with ardour and glowing spirit, when the soul becomes a censer and lights a burning fire.”
Saint John Chrysostom, + 407 A.D.
