I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I had every plan to be at Mass tonight. Our parish is St. Andrew’s and today is the feast day of our patron Saint. But, life has a way of intervening and with Mr. O unable to bring D to his Cub Scout den meeting, I’m left with that task.
St. Andrew was the brother of Peter and called the first apostle of Christ. He is said to have been crucified on a cross of the form called Crux decussata (X-shaped cross, or “saltire”), now commonly known as a “Saint Andrew’s Cross” — supposedly at his own request, as he deemed himself unworthy to be crucified on the same type of cross as Jesus had been.
While I might not be at Mass in a few hours, one thing I can do is to begin the Christmas Novena today. It’s really simple to do and I hope I won’t forget a day.
Say 15 times a day from St. Andrew’s Day (30 November), ending on Christmas Eve.
