Sunday Angelus

From Pope Benedict XVI on December 13, 2009

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We have now reached the Third Sunday of Advent. Today in the liturgy the Apostle Paul's invitation rings out: ``Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.... The Lord is at hand!`` (Phil 4: 4-5).

St. Andrew's Novena

To be said each day during Advent:

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 the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.
