Feast of St. Andrew

Today is the feast of St. Andrew the Apostle. We have him to thank for introducting his brother Simon Peter to Jesus.

Here is the text of a Christmas novena prayer that in our Catholic tradition has often been recited from the feast of St. Andrew to Christmas:

St. Andrew 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
