Optional Conclusion:
(To be said once at the end)
V. Let us pray. O Lord Jesus
Christ, Thou wert pleased so to
humble Thyself in Thine incarnate
divinity and most sacred humanity
as to be born in time and become
a little child. We beseech thee:
(state your intentions)
R. Amen.
V. Grant O Lord that by adoring
Thy humiliations on earth,
R. We may come to
contemplate Thy glories in
heaven, Who with (☨) the Father
and the Holy Ghost livest and
reignest forever. Amen.

it is the key to heaven.

While a novena is normally a nine-day prayer, the term is sometimes used for any prayer that is repeated over a series of days. The Saint Andrew Christmas Novena is often called simply the "Christmas Novena" or the "Christmas Anticipation Prayer," because it is prayed 15 times every day from the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle (November 30) until Christmas. The First Sunday of Advent is the Sunday closest to the Feast of Saint Andrew.

The novena is not actually addressed to Saint Andrew but to God Himself, asking Him to grant our request in the honor of the birth of His Son at Christmas. You can say the prayer all 15 times, all at once; or divide up the recitation as necessary (perhaps five times at each meal).

Prayed as a family, the Saint Andrew Christmas Novena is a very good way to help focus the attention of your children on the Advent season. Be sure to bookmark this page and return every day until you have the prayer memorized, and sign up for our free Catholicism newsletter to be notified every year when the Saint Andrew Christmas novena begins!

Saint 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.

Had not heard of it before. Tell me more.

When all your desires are distilled, you will cast just two votes: to love more and to be happy.

Good morning everyone - I was just wondering if anyone else here was saying the Saint Andrew's novena (also known as the Christmas Anticipation Novena)?

Have an awesome day.
