What is a Rorate Mass? If you’re new to Latin Mass and wondering – what is a Rorate Mass? Simply put, it’s a beautiful and ancient candlelight Latin Mass honoring Our Lady at dawn; it’s name taken from the first words of the Introit of the Mass which comes from the words of Isaiah 45:8 (Rorate, caeli…). As is custom each year, we provide you a great article on it, written by local traditional blogger, Brian Williams at this website: https://onepeterfive.com/rorate-caeli-mass-advent-tradition-honoring-lady/
