Praying the Angelus - Find Joy, Peace, and Purpose in Everyday Life
By Jared Dees. The Angelus prayer is a Catholic devotion that dates as far back as the fourteenth century. The prayer focuses on Mary’s Fiat and the Incarnation of Christ. The call to pray the Angelus occurs three times during the day: dawn (6 AM), midday (12 Noon), and dusk (6 PM). The purpose of praying the Angelus is to pause during your busy day, so that you can give glory to God. It reminds you to dedicate your time, work, and lives to God. It unites you not only with God, but with others in the world praying this prayer. Praying the Angelus contains meditations on each part of the prayer, as well as meditations on the Regina Caeli prayer, which is prayed instead during the Easter liturgical season. The author states, “Regular praying of the Angelus has changed my life. Through discipline and perseverance, it will change yours, too.” A beautiful invitation to the Angelus prayer!
