O Antiphon Chocolate Coins

by | Dec 18, 2015 | Advent and Christmas, Christmas 2015, Crafts, O Antiphons | 8 comments

When I made our St. Nicholas Coins for this year I saved some of the large coins from each of the candy bags (I purchased the chocolate coins from Trader Joe’s), giving the children all the small coins along with three large St. Nicholas coins. I thought about saving the extras to make Christmas Coins but then, after counting and having seven each, I decided to make O Antiphon Coins once again. 
We have decorated these chocolates in the past, using the document I shared in this post, but this year I decided to use the beautiful O Antiphon images from The Jesse Tree shared by Michele Quigley.
I printed page two of Michele’s document at 75% and cut out the circles for December 17th-December 23rd with my circle punch

I wanted the edges of each gold coin to show so I trimmed off a little more with the scissors.  I need to find a slightly smaller punch! 

I decorated two sets of coins and then turned the rest over to my girls to finish. They did a great job. It’s so nice having helpers! 🙂

We will start praying the O Antiphons this evening, after the boys arrive back home from hockey, and enjoy the chocolates along with some other special treats for these Golden Nights!

I hope you are all having a blessed Advent!

    I cannot find the document for printing out these images in the link posted. Could you please make it painfully easy for me and list it here as well? Thank you!

    I had a difficult time finding it at first too. It's up near the top, at the end of the 3rd paragraph of her post – the words "Jesse Tree." "There are 24 ornaments including the 7 O Antiphons and I’m offering them here in one downloadable PDF file: Jesse Tree" Here is the direct link to her pdf: http://michelequigley.com/wp-content/uploads/2010

    It looks like it's no longer available on the website I downloaded it from originally… I'm sorry.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
