Roráte Cœli, Désuper

December 22, 2018

On Saturday, December 15th, apostolates across the District celebrated the beautiful Rorate Mass, a traditional Advent devotion in honor of Our Lady. It takes its name from the first words of the Introit and is offered by candlelight in the darkness of the early morning. As the dawn breaks, the church gradually fills with light, the candles and the progressively brighter sunlight symbolizing the Light Who will soon fill the dark world with His radiance.
