Advent is nigh (can you believe it?). There are just two weeks until the Feast of St. Andrew, and then two days later is the first Sunday in Advent.
I plan to pray the St. Andrew Chaplet during Advent, as is the tradition, and to help you along, if you want to pray it, too, I am giving away one of my chaplets. I made several, and put them in my Etsy shop, so if you don't win, you can browse there. The proceeds of the chaplets go to our local Pregnancy Decision Health Center, committed to greater compassion for women facing an unplanned pregnancy.
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.
To win the chaplet, leave your info in the comment box or email me (my address is in the sidebar). I'll give this chaplet away next Tuesday, November 20, and it will be to the winner by November 30. Please make sure you leave your contact information, or a way to find you later.
