Another Christmas Novena:

A Christmas Novena Prayer
Dec 16th to 24th

It’s called the St. Andrew Christmas Novena, or more simply, The Christmas Novena, and it’s a wonderful way to enter into the Advent season that is marked by a time of anticipation, penance, and prayer.

While the origins of this prayer are unknown, it is over 100 years old at least and may have come from Ireland.

St. Andrew
Christmas Novena
25-Day (Nov 30th to Dec 24th) or
9-Day (Dec 16th to 24th)

Cross-IconIn the Name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.

Say your own intentions silently . . . . . . . . . . .

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 the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.

If the St. Andrew novena was prayed as a traditional nine-day novena, it would end on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8th. However, this novena prayer is actually traditionally prayed much longer than nine days—it is prayed through all four weeks of Advent.

It is piously believed that whoever recites the St. Andrew Christmas novena prayer FIFTEEN times each day from the feast of St. Andrew (30th November) until Christmas Eve will obtain the favor requested.
