We live in a world of notifications! A notification is an icon, a vibration, a ding, or some other sound that pops up on an electronic device to let us know that something new has happened or to remind us about something. Before the world of electronic devices, one notification that Catholics relied on was church bells, which would ring, not only when Mass was beginning on Sunday, but also daily at 6 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m. (the last being a reminder for all of us Paprocki kids to run home from the playground for dinner!), as an invitation to pray the Angelus. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore the Angelus as a way of sanctifying the hours of the day while briefly telling the story of the Annunciation and the Incarnation.
