Wheat | by Kurt Lorenz

The oldest Christian tradition assocaited with this day is the singing of the litany in procession through the countryside to keep mildew from affecting the wheat harvest.  There was a relic of this agricultural concern in the Gospel previoiusly appointed for this day (John 15:1-11) which told of the vine and the vinedresser.
