Our Magnum Opus

I guess this could be a theme. Our plan for this Advent is to learn more Advent songs as a family. Since we just started Latin this year we will also work on Adeste Fideles for Christmas.

I do like the new color!


This is really a great idea Wendy! I'd say since you're pregnant this Advent and Christmas, how about the first few Joyful Rosary mysteries? A few titles that come to mind are "The Word made Flesh," "Hail Full of Grace," or "Behold, a Virgin Shall Concieve and Bear a Son." Your family could keep track of the unborn Jesus as you follow your own babe's progress and perhaps Our Lady of Guadalupe could be your "holy mascot."


We're planning to focus on the "animals of the nativity" this Advent season. I haven't done too much planning yet, but have started collecting book titles and ideas for crafts and activities - like a trip to a local barn in December. I'm also looking for an Advent calendar that features the manger scene. :)

Christmas Novena

  • Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen
