Archbishop Soc revives Angelus tradition

LINGAYEN-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas and Dagupan Mayor Benjamin Lim will lead the praying of “The Angelus” to be aired simultaneously over local radio stations every six o-clock in the evening starting the Holy Week observance.

The Angelus, a prayer in honor of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, is traditionally recited by devout Catholics three times a day — morning, noon, and night — at the sound of a bell.

Villegas said he wants to revive the tradition in the city and asks everyone to pause at six o’clock in the evening everyday and collectively pray “The Angelus”. (CIO)
