Hard to believe Advent, and this beloved St. Andrew Christmas Novena, are over!
I hope that praying this novena helped you prepare more deeply to adore the Christ Child in that "blessed hour and moment!" No need to stop abruptly, by the way! Keep praying it as long as you feel inspired to! It's a beautiful prayer anytime you are in adoration, or during Mass, as He is about to be made present in the Eucharist. Where ever Jesus is present in the Eucharist, it's Christmas!
See you next Advent, God willing!

One more time together...

Sharing some photos highlights from the market: two kind souls brought over market candied almonds, and Gluhwein -in a commemorative mug! Super big mug fan here! Impressive to see (our young) Fr. Nicholas transform after Mass and play old St. Nicholas, spray-painting his beard that he's been growing for the occasion! But the 4-month-old dog wearing lederhosen stole my heart with nuzzles and licks after a long day! Big thanks to the organizers at St. Rita’s in Alexandria, VA for making year 2 a hit!
