Rogation Sunday

Last Sunday we celebrated Rogation Sunday.
Rogation Sunday, a time of celebration and prayer, is a time set aside to appreciate and recognize our dependence upon the land for our food and most importantly upon our dependence of God for the miracles of sprouting seeds, growing plants, and maturing harvest. ( cf. http://www.synodresourcecenter.org/)

The following cf. Parish Bulletin May 13th
The Fruits of the Earth and the Labour of Mankind
Almighty and merciful God, from whom cometh every good and perfect gift:  Bless, we beseech thee, the labours of thy people, and cause the earth to bring forth her fruits abundantly in their season, that we may with grateful hearts give thanks to thee for the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.  James 1: 22.

Whatever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  John 16: 23
