St. Andrew Christmas Novena

(It begins on the feast of St. Andrew and is prayed 15 times each day)

Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Blessed Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my petitions through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
