St Andrew's Day!


Happy Feastday to all who claim St. Andrew as their patron! (Especially, again, the ones remembered here)

And also a reminder that the "St. Andrew's Novena" begins today:

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.

(To be recited fifteen times a day from the feast of St. Andrew until Christmas)

I'd not heard of that novena before. Now to remember it for next year!
