BOONSBORO - Since the fifth century, Christians have observed the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before the day of Jesus' ascension as Rogation Days. Rogation comes from the Latin word "rogare," meaning "to ask," when the church asked God's protection and blessing on the crops that were beginning to sprout. Rogation processions would walk the boundary lines of a parish church and mark them with crosses - a practice known as "beating the bounds. " St. Mark's Episcopal Church celebrated Rogation in mid-May.
