“Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the just”
Rorate Masses – Saturday Mornings in Advent The Rorate Mass is a Votive Mass in honor of the Blessed Mother for the season of Advent. It has a long tradition in the Catholic Church, especially in European countries. The Masses had to begin before dawn and were said by candlelight. We will be having them at St Francis on the first three Saturdays of Advent; December 9th, 16th, and 23rd.
