Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

St. Andrew Chaplets

Now that I have the huge knitting project finished, I'm working on creating some more rosaries and chaplets for my Etsy shop. It's looking pretty sparse. I just added some St. Andrew chaplets, if you have a need, and a couple of twine rosaries. I'll be adding some bronze St. Andrew chaplets this week.

The Chaplet of St. Andrew is traditionally prayed during Advent, from the Feast of St. Andrew on November 30, until Christmas. The prayer is prayed fifteen times a day, and the fifteen beads help you keep track.

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. 


  1. I just love this novena! I started this with my kids several years ago. We pull out a beautiful Nativity painting and focus on that. It takes some perseverance to do it everyday, but it's a perfect little meditation . Gets the mind/heart focused on the real meaning of Christmas.

    1. I pray this little prayer all day during Advent and while I;'m falling asleep. I have a chaplet, but don't necessarily use it. I'm sure I get more than 15 prayers in. :-) It is a beautiful, picturesque prayer.

  2. Thank you for posting that lovely prayer Barbara...much love from your heathen Protestant friend:)


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
