Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week are the Rogation Days that precede Ascension Thursday. Historically the Catholic Church has encouraged the faithful to undertake processions on these days, asking God to bless the fields, so that farmers may have good harvests. In modern times we have tended to lose that connection. However, current events are bringing the farmer’s work back to the forefront of our concerns. There are readings and prayers for each day. You may find them and more on the history and explanation of the Rogation Days here.
