Happy Liturgical New Year everyone and a blessed start to the Advent season!
It's a great opportunity to start anew on many levels, so let me take this opportunity to introduce you to some new St. Andrew Christmas Novena prayer beads!
I brought back an updated light violet design with a beautiful shimmery two tone luster 6mm Czech fire-polished bead that reflects both colors of Advent, violet and rose! It has a light weight to it as well for easy wearing all day, reminding you to looking out for the star that leads to the Christ-child. It is conveniently divided into three sections for breaking up the 15 prayers throughout the day.
I needed to update my beloved deep violet Rosebud beads since the 6mm size appears to be discontinued. I've been searching all year and all I could find was some rare stock of 8mm Rosebud beads that are also very beautiful and have even more detail. Since they have a little more substance to them, to balance it out, I replaced the star charm with the unique Madonna and Child solid sterling silver medal. The imagery pairs beautifully with the rosebud being the symbol of Our Lady, honoring her feast day in Guadalupe giving Juan Diego the sign of roses. These are also conveniently divided in three sections. Since this is my signature design, I'm trying hard to keep it in supply, but I cannot guarantee I will be able to keep offering them. So if you are interested in either of these size rosebud beads, get them while you can.
Both these new bracelets are so beautiful in person and both feel like they are my new favorites! They help me stay focus on different imagery contained in the St. Andrew Christmas Novena Prayer. I hope they help you to pray this novena more deeply too. Let me know what you think!
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!
