    How to use "Thurible" in context?

    The word "thurible" comes from the Latin "thuribulum" meaning "a small spout from a pot." A thurible is a small metal container with an opening at one end, used for distributing incense in religious ceremonies. The modern thurible is a miniature bellshaped container, often made of copper, with a small hole in the top. Incense is lit inside the thurible and then burnt using a small flame. The smoke from the burning incense is then drawn up the thurible's small spout and dispersed throughout the ceremony.
