Great links, Jenn!


I thought I'd share our family advent tradition. Years ago I drew my own "O Antiphons." I cut out each one, glued it to red cardstock cut in the shape of a diamond, and hung with yarn. We have our advent wreath hung from the ceiling a la the von Trapps, so beginning on December 17th, each night when we light the advent candle and say the antiphon, we hang the appropriate symbol from the bottom of the wreath. At Christmas we change the candles to red and the antiphons remain. It is quite pretty.


Beautiful post as always Jenn, thank you, especially for all the lovely links :)

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
