Feast Day of St. Andrew the Apostle


Just a reminder that the St. Andrew Christmas Novena begins today on his feast day. It is a beautiful way for families to bring in the Peace and Joy of Christmas and the great Hope it offers throughout the Season of Advent.


It is piously believed that whoever recites the St. Andrew Christmas Novena prayer 15 times each day from the feast of St. Andrew (November 30) until Christmas Eve will obtain the favor requested.

Hail and Blessed be the hour and 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 grant my prayer and grant my desires,
through the merits of Our Savior, Jesus Christ,
and of His Blessed Mother.
Amen.
