Advent Offering Today

Winter, 2009

I want to share with you this Christmas Novena sent to me by the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology.

It is said that this novena was traditionally prayed 15 times a day from the Feast of Saint Andrew, the
Apostle, November 30, until Christmas.  Praying it along with my other prayers seems a reasonable way to incorporate this into my Advent devotions.  And as it was offered to me so I offer it to you.

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 the piercing cold.
I beseech Thee, 
O my God, 
To hear my prayers and
grant my desires,
[there mention your request]
Through the merits of 
Our Savior Jesus Christ,
and of His Blessed Mother.

Wishing you all a grand day and may all your prayers be fulfilled in their asking!

Thanks be to God!


  1. Such a beautiful prayer! Thank you so much for passing it on!
    Many blessing for now and always, dear Cathy!

  2. Good afternoon dearest Cathy,

    What a lovely prayer; to think that our prayers are like an incense to God just amazes me. Thank you dear friend for coming by today!

    Enjoy your weekend. We have LOTS OF SNOW! Anita


This has become a new adventure. One in which I will try to express my journey with providence.
