What is the St. Andrew’s Novena?

"The St. Andrew’s Novena—which begins on this Apostle’s feast day—consists of a short, beautiful prayer that is recited fifteen times a day in honor of Our Lord’s Nativity.

It is not a novena in the literal sense of the word, because it lasts much longer than nine days—beginning on November 30 and finishing on Christmas Eve, which makes it 25 days long. (If you’re a numbers person, that means this novena prayer is recited a total of 375 times!)"
