The Angelus

The Angelus is an ancient practice of marking the hours of the day. It is said at 6 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m. One of the western world's most famous paintings is of an elderly couple standing in a field, hands folded, praying. The painting is the Angelus although Protestants have renamed it.

Please take a few minuets of your day to say the Angelus using this clip. The artwork is by our brother Luiz. Our thanks to Luiz for sharing.

The painting I menioned is by Jean Francois Millet.
