Cowart's Common Room
Rogation Sunday

To those of you who wanted to know more about Rogation Sunday go to Peterwf' Religious Blog. He has given an excellent account of it and its origins. The only thing I can add to what he has said is:
Beating the Bounds of a Parish gets its name from the fact that the Priest who led the walk round the Boundery, beat the ground as he went with a willow 'wand'.

LittleBrownDog's Avatar Thanks for that, Withy - I'll go and have a look at Peter's blog. I'm only sorry I missed ours this year - will definitely make a point of going next year.
