St Andrew Christmas Novena

The St. Andrew/Christmas Novena

Say 15 times a day from St. Andrew’s Day (30 November), ending on Christmas Eve

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.)

[Imprimatur: +MICHAEL AUGUSTINE, Archbishop of New York, New York, February 6, 1897.]

    Whilst I do believe in saintly intervention I have never come accross the St Andrew tradition – I must ask our priest if he knows
