Interior and Altar of St. Michael Catholic Church, Zeli Am Main, Franconia, Germany

Altar server in cassock and surplice.  That which he's carrying is a thurible containing incense.  Incense in Catholic tradition is used for purification (like when the priest incenses the faithful and the altar-- you'll see this at the Latin Mass, and also at the end of Eucharistic Adoration).  It's also a sign of our prayers drifting upward towards God.  Looks like Father Cahill.
