The bells of the Angelus

I was sitting in my backyard praying before my beautiful Lourdes shrine, which is surrounded by greenery and flowers. It was a perfect day, sunny, quiet and serene.  It was about midday.  In the distance I heard the sound of bells ringing.  It was actually an ice-cream van coming down the street.  It was a perfect backdrop and gave the illusion of being at a Lourdes shrine in the French countryside and the Angelus bells ringing.
