Reply To: Santus Bell history available
Dear Ray; It’s nice to hear that someone in your position is interested in introducing the use of Sanctus bells. For the most part I agree with your views on US Church/clergy and “liturgists” in general. All we can do is pray for them and work hard to bring the facts to the surface.
While Sanctus bell use is still up to your priest, my little booklet should shut-down any “liturgist” with an anti-bell agenda to push.
If my parish allowed the ringing of Sanctus bells (which it does not), I believe I would order a set from Ziegler’s at:
They seem well priced, very traditional/solid in design, and Ziegler’s has always treated me quite well. My suggestion does follow a great deal of research.
Be sure to download the latest copy of my booklet which I uploaded tonight. I don’t expect any changes or additions from this point forward. Good luck in your quest to bring bells to your new chapel. Let us know how things turn out.
