Hopefully I can get some answers here. Internet search yielded nothing.
Why is it that the altar bells ring continuously during the Gloria during Holy Thursday Mass and again at the Easter Vigil?
I think it's to draw attention to the Gloria, of course, but why exactly? Thanks,
It's not so much to draw attention to the Gloria itself, but rather it's the last time that we'll hear that joyous sound until the Resurrection is proclaimed.
When I was growing up, the story we were told was that all the bells flew to Rome at that point and didn't return until Easter.:)
