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.
