Pope declares plenary indulgence for December 8 : www.catholicculture.org/news/features/index.cfm?recnum=40979

a member sent us this Christmas Novena Prayer to obtain favors,

to be recited 15 times each day,beginning Nov 30th (St Andrew) until Christmas.

Blessed be the hour and the 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 Savior Jesus Christ and of His Blessed Mother.
