Major Rogation

Today is the Feast of St. Mark and is also the Major Rogation.  The Rogation Days were prominent days in which the faithful fast and do penance while asking for God's protection from danger.  In Lauds today (1962 Divine Office), the Litany of the Saints was recited asking the saints for intercession in this valley of tears.   The video below was for St. John Paul's funeral and henceforth the response was "ora/orate pro eo"

St. John Paul II, pray for us.
