Today is a "Minor Rogation Day" preceding the Ascension of the Lord

For those reading the Office today according to the pre-Bugnini, pre-Pius XII/John XXIII destruction and well before the absurdly abbreviated and abridged Liturgy of the Hours, one will have noticed that it is a Rogation Day. (Note that this is not within the 1961 Office or 1962 Missal.)

If you are in Canada, it is a national holiday today celebrating Queen Victoria, so you have some to pray it.

What is a Rogation Day?

Let them be turned backward, and blush for shame that desire evils to me: Let them be presently turned away blushing for shame that say to me: Tis well, tis well.
Let all that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; and let such as love thy salvation say always: The Lord be magnified.

Prayer
Let us pray.
O God, it is according to thy nature always to show mercy and forgiveness.
Receive our petition that we and all thy servants, bound by the chains of sin, may, by thy tender mercy, be pardoned.
We beg thee, O Lord, hear our prayers as we kneel before thee. Pardon our sins, as we confess them to thee, so that thou mayest, in thy kindness, give us pardon as well as peace.
In thy kindness show us, O Lord, thy unutterable mercy, and at one and the same time free us from all our sins, and snatch us away from the punishment which we deserve for them.
O God, thou art offended by sin, and placated by penance. Look with favor upon the prayers of thy people kneeling before thee. Turn away the scourges of thine anger which we have deserved for our sins.
Almighty, everlasting God, have mercy on thy servant N., our Sovereign Pontiff. Direct him, according to thy mercy into the path of eternal salvation so that, by thy grace, he may both desire those things that are pleasing to thee, and may perform them with all his strength.
O God, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works do proceed; Give unto thy servants that peace which the world cannot give, so that, with our hearts set to obey thy commandments, and freed from the fear of the enemy, we may pass our lives in peace under thy protection.
Inflame our hearts and our desires, O Lord, with the fire of the Holy Spirit, so that we may serve thee with a chaste body, and please thee with a pure heart.
O God, thou art the creator and redeemer of all the faithful. Grant to the souls of thy servants departed the remission of all their sins, so that by our faithful prayers they may obtain the pardon they have always desired.
We beg thee, O Lord, to direct our actions by thy holy inspiration, and carry them forward by thy gracious assistance, so that every prayer and work of ours may always begin with thee, and, begun through thee, be happily ended.
Almighty and everlasting God, who hast dominion over the living and the dead and who art merciful to all whom thou foreknowest shall be thine by faith and good works, we humbly beg of thee, that they for whom we have intended to pour out our prayers, whether this present world still detains them in the flesh, or whether the world to come has already received them out of their bodies, may, through the prayers of all thy saints, by thy merciful goodness obtain the remission of all their sins
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto thee.
V. May the almighty and merciful Lord graciously hear us.
R. Amen.
V. May the souls of the faithful, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
R. Amen.

Vox.A query!I have a 1962 Roman Missal -is iy in that book?If not where would i find your reference to this particular Rogation Day?Keep up the good work.

Ana Milan said...

The dropping from the Church calendar of Rogation & Ember days together with the Friday Abstinence all goes back to the VII obsession with False Ecumenism which has practically destroyed the essence of Catholicism & has little to offer in piety & the true worship of God, Our Creator & Saviour. The 'Spirit of VII' must be completely rescinded & obedience to Heavenly instructions acted upon immediately. Tradition must be reinstated. We could have had the beginnings of this restoration if the four Cardinals had keep to their pledge to issue the formal correction to PF after Christmas. I hope their faith in Christ & His Blessed Mother is invigorated very soon & they cast away their fear of Cardinal Müller's threat of schism (the CC is in tatters) & will give the leadership expected of them.

Christ is Risen!

Dear Vox,

If I'm not mistaken, the 6 traditional intentions of the Holy Father are in the Litany of the Saints, e.g. peace and true concord.

Am I right?

In Christ the King,

Margaret

Hi Margaret, yes.

Philip, check April 25, the Feast of St. Mark and the three days now prior to the Ascension of the Lord.

I have a St. Andrew's missal with the litany in Latin. I sang the saints' part today at home. I loved it as a kid. It was sung so well at my church. I still love it (careful to get the ora and orate's right!) The ordinariness of the English just can't compare. That supernatural mystical quality isn't there. Thanks Vox.
