The Angelus is a powerful Catholic devotion that can add joy, peace, and purpose into everyday life. The spiritual benefits of praying this prayer come with the commitment to pray it each day at dawn, midday, and dusk.
We have two goals with TheAngelusPrayer.com:
- Promote and spread the daily practice of praying the Angelus at least once each day at 6:00 a.m., noon, or 6:00 p.m.*
- Gather together a community of people who are praying the Angelus using social media (Facebook and Twitter) and email.
*During Easter, the Regina Caeli is said in place of the Angelus to celebrate the joy of the Resurrection!
For centuries Catholics heard the ringing of the Angelus bells at dawn, midday, and dusk. Since our society is no longer structured geographically around churches, I believe we can restore this incredible practice into the daily lives of Catholics through the use of modern technology.
