Christmas, dear readers, feasts

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I’ve had quite a nice one myself. Enjoy the whole season – we’ve got a couple more weeks of it!

The St. Andrew novena is over, but I love the prayer so I’m putting it up here.

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, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.

Happy Feast of the Holy Family/St Stephen’s Day!

Not to mention that tomorrow is St. John the Evangelist, a personal favorite of mine.

I believe I must confess yesterday to be the best Christmas ever. Firstly, some good friends of mine took me and another mutual friend to midnight Mass-and not just any Mass, but the traditional Latin Mass! I have never been to either, at least within my memory. It was wonderful. (I also went to vigil Mass with my family). Secondly, I got a laptop. Thirdly… well, it was just a wonderful Christmas all through! And today’s only the second day of Christmas… so much more to go!
