Last Chance To Enter St. Andrew Chaplet Giveaway

Today is your last chance to enter the St. Andrew Chaplet Giveaway.  I've very much enjoyed reading the comments so far about how you are celebrating Advent.  If you haven't read them, I recommend it.  I will be posting how my family is doing Advent this year at a later date.  It's so great to hear how Catholic families everywhere are reclaiming Advent from the Scrooge of consumerism.  Keep up the good work!



Hello Sarah:
We are praying the St. Andrew Novena this year, using the beautiful chaplets you created for this Advent devotion. While I like the beautiful prayer you sent alng with the chaplet, i believe it is missing a phrase -- making what you typed incorrect. Here is the prayer as I understand it:
"Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the son of God was born of the most pure Virgen Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In THIS hour, vouchsafe, O my God I BESEECH THEE to hear my prayers and desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen."

Somehow adding the missing words makes the recitation meaningful. I have looked elsewhere and have seen the words I capitalised as part of the St. Andrew Prayer. What are your thoughts? Thank you, and I shall be ordering more chaplets soon!
Pax Christi.

I'm not sure which is the original prayer, but Elizabeth Dehority had it on her blog the same way I typed it. Here's where I got my prayer:
