This is the novena of St. Andrew, not because we are talking to St. Andrew with the prayer, but because Andrew was the first Apostle Jesus called, who then ran to get his brother Simon (Peter) and bring him to Christ. Just as Andrew guided his brother, now he guides us.
A “novena” (meaning “nine”) is usually a prayer prayed for 9 days, symbolizing the 9 days of prayer of the Apostles in the Upper Room before Pentecost. But occasionally a novena means any length of time in which a prayer is repeated for a specific petition.
The novena prayer is simple, repeated 15 times a day, and can be completed in, seriously, less than 5 minutes. The prayer is as follows (and will be included with the caplet)
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, I beseech Thee,
O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires
(mention request here)
through the merits of Our Savior
Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother.
The colors of the beads are irrelevant besides giving you a jumping point to go deeper into the prayer! The above prayer is said on each of the 15 beads in this chaplet.
This chaplet is prayerfully designed and handmade by me. The beads are strung on 49-strand steel beading wire, with wire crimps and wire protectors. It is designed to last many years.

This novena chaplet is beautiful! Thought about getting one for this novena the past few years and I am so glad I finally got one! It is perfect and beautiful and I cannot wait for the novena to start so I can begin using it!
This novena chaplet is beautiful! I thought about getting it last year and missed my chance and am so glad I got it this year. It is wonderfully crafter and perfect. I can’t wait for the novena to begin so I can start using my chaplet!
TayaRenea Baggett –
The quality of the St. Andrew novena rosary is great, and the beads were beautiful ( I got the yellow one). I very much enjoyed using this novena leading up to Christmas! I would defiantly buy rosaries here again. The only thing I would have liked better with my order is the quality of the prayer card. I would have liked it to have been laminated or made of sturdier material.
