The Angelus has been broadcast on RTÉ television since 1962, but in recent years there have been a number of calls for it to be changed in light of evolving attitudes to religious practice.
Now, a new set of short films, commissioned from Kairos Communications aims to be “conducive to prayer or reflection for people of all faiths and none”.
The six new featurettes will be shown in daily rotation. RTÉ will also designate one slot per week, on Fridays at 6pm, as ‘The People’s Angelus’.
The Angelus has been with us for decades and any watering down of it should not be allowed.
