Yesterday I received an email from a Marianist-school graduate who recommended for our blog a prayer.
The novena prayer would start on the feast of Saint Andrew which we celebrated yesterday. His father would say the prayer daily which he now says in honor of his father.
Hail and blessed be the hour and the moment in which the Son of God was born of the most Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God! to hear and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.
