Saint Andrew Novena

The Saint Andrew novena begins tomorrow and is prayed each day until Christmas. It is a tradition that I didn't know about until a few years back. I first read about it on Elizabeth Foss' blog and then started seeing St. Andrew chaptlets and novena prayers popping up on other blogs. Praying for Grace is hosting a St. Andrew chaplet giveaway on her blog. I made a chaplet last advent out of beads that I had leftover from making rosaries.

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.

We pray this beautiful prayer 15 times per day from November 30 until Christmas. Please join me, even if you don't have a chaplet. You don't really need one. Some people say the 15 prayers throughout their day and leave little prayer cards of reminders around the house, in prominent places. However you chose to pray this novena, may God bless you and your family during this advent season.

God Bless,
