The Saint Andrew Christmas Novena prayer: (to be said 15x a day until Christmas)
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 Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.
Novena to the Immaculate Conception
Prayer to the Immaculate Conception
O God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, didst prepare a worthy dwelling place for Thy Son, we beseech Thee that, as by the foreseen death of this, Thy Son, Thou didst preserve her from all stain, so too Thou wouldst permit us, purified through her intercession, to come unto Thee. Through the same Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who livest and reignest with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.
O Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God, and my mother, from the sublime heights of thy dignity turn thy merciful eyes upon me while I, full of confidence in thy bounty and keeping in mind thy Immaculate conception and fully conscious of thy power, beg of thee to come to our aid and ask thy Divine Son to grant the favor we earnestly seek in this novena… if it be beneficial for our immortal souls and the souls for whom we pray.
(State your intention)
O Mary, the Immaculate Conception, Mother of Christ, thou hadst influence with thy Divine Son whilst upon this earth; thou hast the same influence now in heaven. Pray for us and obtain for us from him the granting of this petition, if it be the Divine Will. Amen.
