So I decided to pray this novena during Advent, cause I've realized over the past few years that I really don't prepare well enough spiritually for Christmas. Christmas as an adult has always felt a little empty to me. There's so much buildup and then fifteen minutes after all the presents are opened the letdown begins. There's so much we do to prepare for Easter during Lent, but during the Christmas season, its just way too easy to let the shopping become the focus.
Anyway, I found this novena that you begin TODAY November 30th, and say up until Christmas Eve. You're supposed to pray the prayer FIFTEEN times a day (which seems a little daunting) but don't worry, its really short.
Because I'm a major nerd I realized that the place I find myself most frequently during the day is --you guessed it-- my computer. Therefore I turned the prayer into desktop wallpaper for my laptop, haha.
I'll try to make it downloadable in case anyone else is game to join me, haha. Happy Advent!!
