Rorate Caeli

Fr. Longenecker has some brief reflections on Tolkein's "Lord of the Rings" and Advent.

Rorate Caeli is a traditional chant for this holy season.
Rorate caeli desuper, et nubes pluant iustum.

Ne irascaris Domine, ne ultra memineris iniquitatis: ecce civitas Sancti facta est deserta, Sion deserta facta est: Ierusalem desolata est: domus sanctificationis tuac et gloriae tuae, ubi laudaverunt te patres nostri.
