Rogation day

One of the priests from our parish come out to lead the Rogation day prayers. The Rogation days are an ancient custom,  held to call down God’s blessing on the crops, and to ask him to ward off disasters of all sorts.  We processed around the field chanting the Litany of the Saints, and Father sprinkled the land with holy water.

We pray that God will protect our farm against the Hail storms which are all too common here in Colorado, and that we have an abundant harvest.
