Christmas Novena Begins Today

Pious legends, especially those carrying the imprimatur, are relished around here.

One of the better ones is the St. Andrew Christmas Novena. It is pious tradition that whoever recites the following prayer 15 times per day each day from November 30 (Feast of St. Andrew) until Christmas will receive what is asked.

The prayer:

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 Savior Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.
