Here is my favorite Christmas Novena, started on the feast day of St Andrew on 30 November upto 25 December Christmas Day. It is to be recited 15 times a day, which can be said throughout the day.

Saint Andrew Christmas Novena

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
(mention your intentions here),
through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.

A bit about St Andrew –

Brother to Simon Peter, Saint Andrew was a fisherman who heroically died — martyred on a saltire, or x-shaped cross, where he is said to have preached from for two days. For this reason, the x-shaped cross is often called the Saint Andrew cross and is featured on the flag of Scotland of which he is the patron saint.

Pause for a moment during this hour and meditate a few moments on Christ’s suffering for you.

Here is an online version of saying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.  If you don’t have a Rosary, you can click on each bead online.

Litany of Humility


O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, Hear me.
From the desire of being esteemed, Deliver me, Jesus.

From the desire of being loved…
From the desire of being extolled …
From the desire of being honored …
From the desire of being praised …
From the desire of being preferred to others…
From the desire of being consulted …
From the desire of being approved …

From the fear of being humiliated …
From the fear of being despised…
From the fear of suffering rebukes …
From the fear of being calumniated …
From the fear of being forgotten …
From the fear of being ridiculed …
From the fear of being wronged …
From the fear of being suspected …

That others may be loved more than I,Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be esteemed more than I …
That, in the opinion of the world,
others may increase and I may decrease …
That others may be chosen and I set aside …
That others may be praised and I unnoticed …
That others may be preferred to me in everything…
That others may become holier than I,
Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

Almighty and Everlasting God, Who, by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, has appointed the most glorious Archangel St. Michael Prince of Your Church, make us worthy, we ask You, to be delivered from all our enemies, that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into Your Presence.This we ask through the merits of
Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Amen.
