Rorate Mass – Advent Morning Liturgy

Les messes dites Rorate (“Ciel, répands ta rosée !”, Isaïe 45:8) sont des liturgies typiques de l’Avent. Elles sont célébrées à la lueur des bougies, dont l’intensité est graduellement renforcée par l’aube naissant. Ça symbolise l’espoir des chrétiens qui attendent impatiemment l’avenir de la lumière : le Christ.

La liturgie sera suivie d’un petit-déjeuner.

Rorate masses – their name refers to the biblical verse “Rorate coeli desuper” (“Drop down ye heavens from above”, Isaiah 45:8) – are an element of the Catholic liturgy in Advent. These messes are celebrated in the early morning by candlelight, that is gradually intensified by the breaking dawn – to symbolize that Christians eagerly await the coming of the Light: Christ.

A light breakfast will be provided after mass.
