Mike Church‘s talk at the 2023 Midwest Catholic Land Movement on the Incredible Catholic Church Bell, it’s history and how it comes to bleed and hanged in the Bell Tower and telling of the story of The Poor Man And The Bell; an excerpt.

There was once a poor workingman whose devotion to Mass was so great that he endeavored to hear it every day. One morning he had risen early and gone to the market-place to look out, with some other men, for employment, when he heard the bell of a neighboring church for Mass. He directly left the other men and took himself to the church, where he heard Mass very attentively, and implored God to give him that day his daily bread. But on returning to the market-place he found all the other men had got work, and although he waited for some time, no one would give him a job. Presently he went back to his home with a heavy heart, for he could not help regretting that he had lost a day’s work through going to Mass.
