Rogation Mass in Maiden Lane, London


On Monday I attended the regular Mass organaised by the Latin Mass Society in Corpus Christi, Maiden Lane. It was a Rogation Mass, and for the first time (as far as I know) we had the Rogation procession. This went round and round the church while the Great Litany was sung, with each intercession made twice -- so it took a pretty long time!


Fr Michael Cullinan was the celebrant. The 'minor rogations' are the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before the Ascension, and are traditionally days of penance: hence the violet vestments.  It was accompanied by the Southwell Consort with chant and polyphony.
