Rogation Days and Feast of SS Philip and James

The New Liturgical Movement has a nice piece reminding us that these three days before the feast of the Ascension are Rogation Days, when traditionally a procession was held before Mass that includes a litany of the saints.  Today's is reduced to a commemoration by the feast of SS Philip and James, still, there is nothing stopping you from saying or singing a litany yourself - and the Church certainly needs your prayers!

You can find a version to sing along with on youtube.
