It's Gaudete Sunday!
And here's something new for this Advent. I've mentioned many times that I have our daughters' godmother, Holly, to thank for the St. Lucia bread that we
devour enjoy every year. Holly is so creative and artistic, and this year she surprised us with a sweet new tradition for the O Antiphons, which begin on December 17th.
She sent chocolate coins, each with a symbol for one of the O Antiphons.
She told the girls to say the accompanying prayer each day from December 17-23, and to know that she would be praying for them, too.
Thank you, Holly! We'll be praying for you as well (but you already knew that.)

The prayers that Holly used are from Michele Quigley and can be found here.
