Christmas Novena for Advent

On the Eve of the Feast of St. Andrew, I would like to invite you all to pray the Novena of St. Andrew also called the Christmas Novena...

Hail and blessed be the hour and the 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. 


(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.)

+MICHAEL AUGUSTINE, Archbishop of New York
New York, February 6, 1897

Below is a picture of a St. Andrew Chaplet with such a sweet little baby Jesus medal!  A beautiful piece for meditation of this Christmas prayer.  It is has SOLD out....but I may get another one in stock before Advent is through.

This sweet baby Jesus medal is precious on this St. Andrew Chaplet

Have a Holy Advent!
