« on: November 28, 2021, 11:36:04 PM »
HAPPY FEAST OF SAINT ANDREW=November 30 :pray3:

Many people pray this novena from November 30th (St. Andrew’s Feast Day) leading up to Christmas.

If you start this novena, remember that it is actually 25 days long, not the traditional 9 days of other novenas.

(Mention your intentions here)

Through Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother.

Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

My handmissal is a 60 year old St Andrew's missal (the original owner gave it to me), and St Andrew is the first saint of the year marked in the missal. I will try follow this Novena.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.

Yes Christe Eleison.  I deleted the email, but I think it said that Cardinal Burke will be saying at least one of the three Masses.  I'm sure I'll be getting an email tomorrow with a link to the St. Andrew novena.  I'll post it and any more information about Cardinal Burke's recovery if they say anything.

Thank you. More put in my hand as the elderly man who owned it and another said his children would just throw them away. He still have his Latin-Gaelic missal as it was the usual one used by his late wife, which he could never let go for obvious reasons, even though he is not a traditionalist himself, preferring the English Mass, as he calls it. I pray for him, as best I can.

The Remnant has an old, simple article treating of the history, traditions and Novena (obviously not quite a Novena being a bit longer) itself.

Quote
This novena is called the St. Andrew novena because it is begun on the feast of St. Andrew, on November 30. It is also referred to as the Christmas Anticipation Novena since it is intended to assist us in meditating on the true meaning of Christmas. This novena is meant to be prayed from November 30th to December 24th. (See end of article for the prayers)

St. Andrew was a native of Bethsaida in Galilee, a fisherman by trade, and a former disciple of John the Baptist. He introduced his brother, Simon Peter, to Jesus, saying, "We have found the Messiah." Overshadowed henceforth by his brother, Andrew nevertheless appears again in the Gospels introducing souls to Christ. After Pentecost, Andrew took up the apostolate on a much wider scale, and is said to have been martyred at Patras in southern Greece on a cross which was in the form of an "X". This type of cross has long been known as "St. Andrew's cross."

When Andrew was led to the place of martyrdom, on beholding the cross from a distance he cried out: "O good Cross, so long desired and now set up for my longing soul, I, confident and rejoicing, come to you; exultingly receive me, a disciple of Him who hung on you." Forthwith he was nailed to the cross. For two days he hung there alive, unceasingly proclaiming the doctrine of Christ until he passed on to Him whose likeness in death he had so vehemently desired.

Patron of: Achaia; Amalfi, Italy; Anglers; Burgundy; diocese of Constantinople; fish mongers; fishermen; those with gout; Greece; Germany; maidens; old maids; Patras, Greece; Russia; Scotland; singers; sore throats; University of Patras; women who wish to become mothers.

Symbols: Fish; Saint Andrew's cross; Cross saltire (X-shaped); V or Y shaped cross; two fishes; tall cross and book; vertical spear; primitive fish hook; fisherman's net.
Often Portrayed As: Man bound to a cross; man preaching from a cross; preacher holding fish.

Things to Do:

Today's feast traditionally marks the end of the Church year and beginning of Advent. Advent always begins on the Sunday closest to November 30, with this day being the last possible day of the old Liturgical Year. Christmas is right around the corner. An old saying reflected this:

St. Andrew the King
Three weeks and three days
before Christmas begins.

Because weddings were not allowed during Advent and Christmas and Andrew is the patron of unmarried maidens, many countries have marriage-related superstitions connected to this day. See Patron Saints Index for a few traditions.

- Beginning today the Christmas Anticipatory Prayer, also known as the "Novena to St. Andrew" (Hail and Blessed be the hour...) is prayed every day until Christmas.
- View some of the art depictions: Gallery of Images of Andrew.
- Remember to pray for fishermen and all who make their livelihood by the sea.
- Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, Russia, and Romania. The flag of Scotland (and the Union Flag and the arms and Flag of Nova Scotia) feature a saltire (X-shaped cross) in commemoration of the shape of St. Andrew's cross.
- Read more about St. Andrew from Butler's Lives of the Saints. Also read about Andrew from The Golden Legend.

Foods connected with this feast: St. Andrew was a fisherman, so fish dishes and biblical themes would reign supreme. Women for Faith and Family have reprinted Evelyn Vitz's suggested "Biblical Dinner" menu. But there are other foods connected with this day:

- Scotland: St. Andrew is the patron of Scotland. Scones, haggis, sheepshead and fish dishes are traditional. The scones are called "wigs", although their shape is rectangular.
- England: St Andrew is a patron of lace-makers. On his feast, sometimes known as "Tander", areas such as Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire celebrate by feasting, drinking elderberry wine, sports and serving a special cake called the Tandra Cake, particularly in Bedfordshire. It has a bread dough base to which lard, sugar, currants, lemon peel and eggs are added. This is also a day for squirrel hunting in England, so Brunswick Stew would be another dish on the table in England.
- Slovakian Countries: Halushky (pasta dish) is cooked. Unmarried girls place slips of paper with names of single young men into the dish.

St. Andrew’s Novena Prayer:

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.
Amen.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.

Hi Christe Eleison.  I received an email from Cardinal Burke's group that's called Operation Storm Heaven today.  On the first of each month the group prays the Rosary and the Holy Mass is offered by Cardinal Burke if he is well.  Archbishop Sample of Portland said the Mass on Nov. 1st and Archbishop Cordileone of San Francisco said the Mass I think on both Sept. and Oct. 1st. while Cardinal Burke was recovering.  But now the email and this page say "I am excited to inform you that Cardinal Burke will be offering the Holy Mass and will say a Holy Rosary tomorrow, Dec. 1 for Operation Storm Heaven and your intentions!"

https://www.catholicaction.org/osh_intentions_dec_2021

Sometimes there's a live video of Cardinal Burke's Mass.  If they send one tomorrow I'll post it.


-----------------------------------------------

Bishop Athanasius Schneider's Rosary Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima is also doing the St. Andrew's novena, and praying for the intentions of bringing an end to the Monstrous Fetal Industry.  You know, this is in line with Bishop Schneider offering the religious exemptions for the vaccine.  Anyway Bishop Schneider is asking us to offer this prayer below daily after saying the St. Andrew's prayer 15 times, which is in your opening post and at the end of Prayerful's post above.


Prayer for An End to the Monstrous Fetal Industry

Almighty and eternal God, Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Mercifully look upon mankind, steeped in the grievous sin of abortion and the trafficking and the exploitation of the bodies of murdered unborn babies through the monstrous fetal industry.

Have mercy on us, we beseech Thee, and through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of the blessed and glorious Virgin Mary, deliver us from these evils in every land and nation, that men may no longer offend Thee, who art already so grievously offended.

We wish to make amends to Thy Divine Majesty for this genocide, and for the cruel and barbarous use of their tiny bodies in medical research and manifold products.

Receive this our prayer and act of reparation, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary Most Holy.

Holy Innocents of Bethlehem, pray for us.

Saints Francisco and Jacinta of Fatima, pray for us!

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

I have c. 3 vols of the Liturgical Year, some 1860 to 1910 English translation. This includes Advent. The book actually makes a great missal and prayer book. No one seems to sell individual handback versions, barring finds on Ebay or wherever.
