Liability Insurance...


This morning, Matthew Schellhorn served Mass and then Benediction at Blackfen. It was apparently the first time he'd ever handled a thurible. I pointed out to His Hermeneuticalness that perhaps we ought not to let Matthew be thurifer in future, at least not without some serious training. I'm sure that the parish isn't sufficiently insured against injury to the fingers and thumbs of a professional concert pianist...

Cheap insurance for cars states Third party, Fire and Theft. All of these apply in this case! he could hit somebody..... the embers could catch vestments or carpets alight.... and being made of metal the thurible is a target for thieves!
As a scientist could you come up with an aerosol version in a spray-can!
