Beautiful post! And yes! It is time to prepare for Advent already! We have lots of ideas we're hoping to try this year, and prayer is a big part of it. I will be looking through your links and finding more I am sure.

One thing we do is buy our Christmas tree on the first Sunday of Advent, but we decorate it with purple lights and either Jesse Tree ornaments or Nativity figures, leading up to baby Jesus on Christmas Eve, with scripture readings and prayer every night of Advent. Then, once it is the ACTUAL Christmas Season, we spend family evenings together decorating the tree with more colorful lights and decorations.

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
