This is a repost from last year to serve as a reminder.
Starts on November 30 (St. Andrew’s Feast Day) ~ Ends on December 24 (Christmas Eve)
I created a printable novena card. You may print and share, freely.
The following beautiful prayer is traditionally recited fifteen times a day until Christmas.
St. Andrew Christmas Novena
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 (30th November) until Christmas will obtain what is asked.)

May this meditative prayer help us increase our awareness of the real focus of Christmas and helps us prepare ourselves spiritually for His coming.
