Advent 2022

Advent 2022

Over the years, I have written, prepared workshops, and baked many edible and a few inedible food items for the Advent and Christmas seasons. I truly loved those years. It was great fun doing all the many seasonal activities. In this post I am going to list some of the Advent feast days that I wrote about in the past with their links.


This Advent I am limiting myself to a post on St. Lucy. Bob, Catherine, and I went to the church in Venice where St. Lucy is entombed and remains incorrupt. I took pictures and purchased a book which I will share with you closer to her feast day on December 13.

I am working on another writing project this December which I look forward to sharing with you after the first of the year. In the meantime, I am going to recommend The Harwood Mysteries Series for your children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews who are ten and up by Antony Barone Kolenc. It is published by Loyola Press. There are four in the series currently with six in total planned. I will write about them in another post, but I recommend them as great reads and Christmas presents for your middle schoolers and up. I have read two of them already and am now reading the third. Don't wait for me to finish!  Check them out yourself at this link:The Harwood Mysteries

The links below will take you from my oldest posts on Advent starting at the top to the newer posts at the bottom of the page. The novena prayer to St. Andrew concludes the post. Tomorrow's is his feast day. Happy Feast of St. Andrew! St. Andrew help us to have a fruitful Advent.

St. Andrew's Christmas Novena Prayer

begin this prayer on November 30, recite it 15 times each day and conclude on Christmas

Hail and Blessed be the hour and the moment when the Son of God was born of the most holy Virgin Mary at midnight in Bethlehem in the piercing cold. In that hour, I beseech thee O God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires (here mention your intentions) through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother. Amen
