God’s Blessing and Good Health on all parishioners

The question from a parishioner; “Father, why are there bells on the incenser?” 
The bells represent the apostles calling the people to Jesus Christ.  There should be 12 bells with the ringer removed from one, this one represents Judas who lost his voice when he betrayed Jesus and fell silent.  We are supposed to be standing when the King, Jesus Christ enters and because the holy doors are supposed to be closed for much of the liturgy, the people would not necessarily be able to see what is happening at the altar, so when the people hear the bells they know it is time to stand.
In addition, some people have commented, “Father, we have seen anyone swing the incenser like you do.”  What the priest does before incensing the church is first stand in front of the altar and make a sign of the cross with the incenser.  Some priests do it Roman Catholic style with their hand while holding the incenser, I swing the incenser so that the incenser boat, with the incense, makes the sign of the cross, first the vertical pole swinging up and then the cross beam and now it is time to incense the entire church.
