``Where the Bishop is, there let the multitude of believers be;
even as where Jesus is, there is the Catholic Church'' Ignatius of Antioch, 1st c. A.D

Christmas Novena I

Some Catholics pray this Novena from 30 November to 24 December. Others prefer the more classic 9-day Christmas Novena begun on 16 December. And, of course, some Catholics pray no Christmas Novena at all.

Christmas Novena I
Say 15 times a day from St. Andrew's Day (30 November) until Christmas

Hail, and blessed be the hour and moment at which the Son of God was born of a most pure Virgin at a stable at midnight in Bethlehem in the piercing cold. At that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, to hear my prayers and grant my desires. (Mention your intentions here) Through Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother.
