The Angelus is usually accompanied by the ringing of The Angelus Bell, which is a Call to Prayer and to spread good-will to everyone. The Angel referred to in the Prayer is Gabriel, a Messenger of God, who revealed to Mary that she would Conceive a Child to be Born The Son of God. (Saint Luke 1:26–38).
