Tune in today to learn about how to COMPLETE the St. Andrew Christmas novena. You might be leaving something out!
Today's podcast also includes a reflection on being born again together with Jesus Christ in the manger at Christmas time. What hope we have in the infant King who saves us! It is a fantastic time to be waking up with His Majesty in the manger.
Here's the text of the novena prayer to be prayed 15 times per day during Advent and twice that on Christmas Day:
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, [here mention your request] through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ and of His blessed Mother. Amen.
