Storyboard Text

  • Maria, come down for the Novena, we're waiting for you.
  • Do I have to?
  • When I was young, I never looked forward to the Catholic tradition of La Novena. Whenever my brothers would call me to go downstairs to celebrate, I was never excited or looking forward to it. Even though I didn't have anything better to do, I didn't want to spend my time taking part in it.
  • Once I would take the steps downstairs towards my family and friends every day, I would long for the final day of the tradition.  Meanwhile, everyone would be singing songs and listening to the powerful words of the Rosary, I was drifting away and floating off somewhere in my mind not paying attention.
  • Here, from me to you. Maybe you can pass it on later.
  • Eventually, I got bored and fell asleep in the middle of it. Everyone including my brothers that were right beside me stared at me in disbelief that I had fallen asleep. When I had woken up, I felt embarrassed.
  • After everyone had left, my mother and I had a one on one conversation. She knew how embarrassed I had felt and told me it wasn't my fault. She hadn't taken the time to explain to me why we take part in La Novena every year.
  • She told me La Novena is a Catholic tradition mainly celebrated in Colombia that takes place for 9 days before and until it is Christmas.The purpose of our tradition was to praise the Lord and celebrate the birth of Jesus
  • She stuck out her hand and my mother handed me a necklace with a cross that was a family heirloom that she had received when she was younger.
