St. Andrew Christmas Anticipation Novena
Did you know that Advent always begins on the first Sunday closest to the Feast of St. Andrew and that there’s a beautiful novena because of that? November 30th is the Feast of St. Andrew, and the connection of his feast to Advent isn’t just a nice coincidence. There is a deeper meaning here. You see, St. Andrew was the first disciple called by Our Lord … in fact, in the Orthodox tradition he is known by the name Prōtoklētos which means “First Called”.
And in John’s gospel chapter 1, verse 41, we read that after Andrew was called by Jesus, he found his brother Simon and said to him “We have found the messiah!”
St. Andrew points us to the Messiah … and it's fitting for us that the Church celebrates the Feast of St. Andrew so close to the beginning of the liturgical year, as we prepare for the coming of the Messiah at Christmas, through the Advent season, to remind us of our anticipation of the coming of the Messiah, the longing in each of us for our Savior Jesus Christ, for whom we wait with joyful hope.
We want to share this Catholic devotion with you and your family as you prepare your hearts throughout Advent for the coming of Our Lord this Christmas.
