Hello everyone, today is the Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle. I wish I could compose a beautiful post for the feast of such an important saint; however, I have to get ready to serve Holy Mass this evening. So I’m going to leave you all with this beautiful Novena.
It is piously believed that whoever recites the following prayer fifteen times a day from the Feast of St. Andrew to Christmas Eve will obtain their request.
The prayer is:
“Hail and Blessed be the Hour and the 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.”
+MICHAEL AUGUSTINE, Archbishop of New York
New York, February 6, 1897
Happy Feast of St. Andrew! May Our Lord richly bless you through the intercession of this powerful saint!
