The Rorate Mass is a Votive Mass in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the season of Advent. The Mass begins relatively early in the morning when it is still dark, and the church is illumined only by candlelight. This recalls the advent of Christ, Light of the world. It has a long tradition in the Catholic Church, especially in German-speaking areas.
