The Angelus

I don't have too much time to blog presently - I'm in LA until Sunday. I wanted to ask, how many of you pray the Aneglus at noon? For Protestants, would you object to this prayer? I see the Hail Mary (if even objectionable in the Rosary - too many "Hail Mary"s and what not) it must be thoroughly appropriate in this context - specifically a devotion remembering the Incarnation.

Just curious.

I don't pray it but I think about praying it a lot because I have a copy of the famous painting of the Angelus in my living room.
What a beautiful way to remember the incarnation everyday. Wouldn't it be cool if every town had a Church that tolled the bells for the Angelus?
There is a neat video on "Loved To Be Catholic" of the Angelus here

I have prayed it regularly but have stopped. I need to do that again. I did notice that my days were very tolerable when praying it.

The Angelus is one of my favorite prayers. It's relatively simple, prayed three times a day, and EXTREMELY contemplative. Every word breathes the Gospel and it's so beautiful.

The best line is the last, "That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ."

hmm..we may be MADE WORTHY!!!! Yeah, we Catholics preach Salvation through Works.
