Rogation Days

Scott Richert explains what they are, since most of us have no idea. Rogation Days are one of those many things that the Second Vatican Council did not abolish but made optional, which then, for some reason, led to them being completely forgotten. Share

"...Rogation Days are days of prayer, and formerly also of fasting, instituted by the Church to appease God's anger at man's transgressions, to ask protection in calamities, and to obtain a good and bountiful harvest."

How interesting that the news has been reporting food shortages and hoarding of rice during these mostly forgotten Rogation days. Perhaps God is trying to tell us something? :)

Yes, Margaret, it is interesting that in the past people did not take food for granted.
