Advent novena-candle jackets

For the Advent season in 2001, we created a set of laser-printed vellum jackets to wrap around inexpensive novena candles. We have used these candles both at home and for our "microchurch" small group.

Each of the five candles features biblical texts selected by Ann Boyd and uses a different font suitable for the material connected with the patriarchs, the prophets, Mary, John the Baptist, and Jesus himself.

Here is a reduced view of the fourth candle, centered on John the Baptist. #

In 2002, our friend Linda Becker rearranged these documents with découpage on novenas, to good effect.
