St. Andrew’s Christmas Novena 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.
About St Andrew from Catholic Fire Blogspot
St. Andrew, son of Jonah, was born at Bethsaida in Galilee. He was a disciple of John the Baptist and became one of the first to follow Jesus, to whom he brought his brother, Simon Peter. Both were fishermen and at the beginning of Our Lord’s public life occupied the same house at Capharnaum.
As one of the twelve apostles, Andrew was very close to Our Lord during His public life; he was present at the Last Supper; beheld the risen Lord; witnessed the Ascension; shared in the graces and gifts of the first Pentecost, and helped, amid threats and persecution, to establish the Faith in Palestine.
