The St. Andrew Christmas Novena – which isn’t exactly a novena because it is 25 days long from November 30th through December 24th – begins tomorrow, November 30th, the Feast of St. Andrew. It’s a great feast for me, because Andrew is my Confirmation Name. It was a fortuitous choice, as ‘Andrew’ means “manly” and “brave”, “strong” and “courageous” in Greek. I like to think that St. Andrew, being St. Peter’s big brother, would defend Peter in a street fight, which is definitely what defending the Petrine See against the Bergoglian Antipapacy feels like.
I’ve seen and personally received great graces from this beautiful devotion over the years, and strongly recommend it. In addition to the obvious Matthew 17:20 Intention, I have several health intentions (for others, not myself) this year, as I know many, many people do. And this year many people have financial and real estate intentions. And, as always, so many people are praying for conversions, and especially REVERSIONS to the One True Faith.
Here is the text of the Novena – you say the following prayer fifteen times per day – and break the fifteen up however you would like:
Hail, and blessed be the hour and moment at which the Son of God was born of a most pure Virgin in 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. Amen.
And here is the fourfold intention of the Matthew 17:20 prayer initiative:
-That Antipope Bergoglio be publicly recognized as an Antipope and removed as such, and that the entire Bergoglian Antipapacy be publicly nullified.
-That Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger be publicly recognized as being and having been the one and only living Vicar of Christ, uninterrupted, from April ARSH 2005 until his death on December 31, ARSH 2022.
-That Jorge Bergoglio repent, revert to Catholicism, die in a state of grace in the fullness of time, and someday achieve the Beatific Vision.
-For the repose of the soul of Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger
St. Andrew, pray for us.
Our Lady of Copacabana, slayer of the Nachomama demon, pray for us.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and upon your Holy Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation.
