Cum ter reboo, pie Christiferam ter afeto.
When I ring thrice, thrice devoutly I greet the Mother of Christ! (inscription on the 15th century bell at Erfert)
Today's Posting - With Gratitude to:
Today, as I settled down in our village chapel to pray a Holy Hour, the midday Angelus bell struck. It was hauntingly beautiful. As the bell rang out and I recited the Angelus, I felt transported.
The sound of the church bell has an eternal quality, as though it pulls us out of the ordinary, out of space and time. It guides us to the very world it calls us to remember – the eternal, the heavenly.
