St. Andrew’s Christmas Novena – Begins Today! (Nov. 30th)

St. Andrew’s Christmas Novena – Begins Today! (Nov. 30th) November 30, 2010

It’s still November 30th, so if you were hoping to pray this beautiful Christmas Novena, it’s not too late! I know that 15 times a day seems like a lot, but this is such a simple prayer and it almost becomes like a mantra throughout the day. “Hail, and blessed be the hour…” The words are poignant and by all accounts, this particular novena is very powerful when it comes to changing hearts and working miracles in difficult situations.

Will you join me in praying this beautiful Christmas Novena? I hope so!

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 {state your intention(s) here}, 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 (30th November) until Christmas will obtain what is asked.)
