Feast of St. Andrew ---Christmas Novena begins!

Today is the feast of St. Andrew and it is a wonderful Advent tradition to begin the following Novena and recite it each day until Christmas Eve.

 Christmas Novena
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 hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.

(It is piously believed that whoever recites the above prayer fifteen times a day from the feast of St. Andrew, on November 30th, until Christmas will obtain what is asked.)

Here one of the St Andrew Chaplets which I made for this Novena.  The Purple Jasper beads are befitting the liturgical colors of the Advent season.
