CANTICA INCENSE (1-lb. bag)


From The Holy Rood Guild at St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts, Cantica Incense (derived from the Latin word canticum, meaning song) has a rich, floral scent that will lift your spirits and fill your heart and home with aromatic chords.

1-lb. resealable foil bag keeps incense fresh & fragrant

How to burn incense in your home:

First, if using larger charcoal break it into halves or quarters. One quarter piece of charcoal is sufficient for most small censers used at home. If using small (dime size) charcoal, there is no need to break it up.

Next, use kitchen tongs, pliers, or large tweezers to hold the charcoal over a lighted candle or a gas flame. It is best to do this over a metal pan or sink as the charcoal will spark. Place the charcoal into your censer bowl and wait until it is glowing red.

Finally place a pinch (about 1-3 grains if a granular incense) of incense onto the smoldering charcoal. Cense the rooms of your house making the sign of the cross.


St. Joseph's Abbey: Spencer, Massachusetts

St. Joseph's Abbey is a monastery of the Catholic Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (O.C.S.O.), popularly known as the "Trappists", located in Spencer, Massachusetts.

The Abbey was founded in 1950 by Belgian and French Trappist monks from the Monastery of Our Lady of the Valley in Valley Falls, Rhode Island, which had burned to the ground. In the rustic hills of central New England, they established a new home in which to follow an age-old contemplative way of life.

The monastery became known internationally as the origin of the Centering Prayer movement, whose leading proponents were monks at the monastery: Fr. William Meninger, Fr. M. Basil Pennington and Fr. Thomas Keating.

Work has always been greatly esteemed in the Cistercian tradition, since it gives the monks the opportunity to follow in Christ' footsteps and share in His Divine work of creation and restoration. The monks participate in three major industries which provide for their livelihood and for the care of the poor. Since the 1950s, they have produced Trappist Preserves, their popular line of 30 flavors of jams and jellies. Since 1949, The Holy Rood Guild has created beautiful, finely-tailored liturgical vestments to enhance the dignity of the Sacred Liturgy. In 2014, with the advice and assistance of their brother Trappists in Belgium, the monks founded Spencer Brewery, producing the first and only certified Trappist beer made in the United States.

Laudate is one of my favorite incense! We use it in my church parish as our basic incense used most often. It is easy on allergies which is a huge plus in this area. Smells great!

I had to purchase this incense after moving back home from Burlington, Vermont. The one priest used this scent and told me how I could purchase my own! Its a heavenly scent and my husband and I love to use it in our home. I also plan on giving some to my parish priest to use during the Holy Triduum this year. Thank you!

I checked the sacrisity at church to see what incense we use, it is Laudate. I ordered samples from Monastery Greetings & burned it at home on an electric incense burner. The texture of the incense is similar to moist pipe tobacco & is dark brown in color. It has a citrusy scent . When burned the scent is intense at first then fades to this wonderful light delicate scent - the familiar scent from church. Ordering more when I use up the samples.
