Today, we begin to celebrate the three Minor Rogation Days before the Ascension. Rogation Days are traditionally days of prayer and 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.
The priests and seminarians of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary first sang the Litany of the Saints inside Ss. Peter & Paul Chapel, then processed outside to the Eastern gardens. There, we blessed our fields, beseeching God to grant us a fruitful harvest both materially and spiritually.
