This bracelet is designed for saying the Christmas Novena, also known as the St. Andrew's Chaplet. It is constructed to sturdy nylon cord and purple glass beads which slide along the cord. A solid bronze "Gloria Deo" (Glory to God) medal is attached, showing the Infant Jesus on one side and the Jerusalem Cross on the obverse side. There is no clasp on this bracelet -- the macrame closure allows the bracelet to adjust to most any size so that it can slide over the hand and be tightened to fit over any wrist to the comfort of the wearer. A Christmas Novena prayer card is included with each order.

The St. Andrew's Advent Chaplet is said every day from the Feast of St. Andrew (November 30th) until Christmas Eve to prepare the soul for the Nativity of Our Lord. Each day, a specific prayer (see below) is said 15 times. It can be said in one sitting, but I like to say it once each hour, spreading it out over my day, to constantly bring my mind back to the mystery of Christmas. My chaplet bracelet with sliding beads allows one to easily keep track of the prayer. Each time the prayer is said, a bead is slid along the cord toward the medal of the Infant Jesus.

The Christmas Novena
"Hail and blessed be the hour and the moment
In which the Son of God was born of the Most Pure Virgin Mary
At midnight, In Bethlehem, In piercing cold.

In that hour vouchsafe, O my God,
to hear my prayer and grant my desires,

through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ,
and of His blessed Mother.
