What is the Angelus?

Every Sunday at 12 in the afternoon, the pope prays the Angelus with pilgrims that gather in St. Peter's Square. The Angelus recalls the moment of the Incarnation, when the angel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary that she was to be the mother of Jesus. Since the days of the early Christians, it has been customary to remember this moment in the life of Virgin Mary. Learn more about the history of this great Christian tradition in this video!
