As the Season of Advent is coming upon us, I ask that you join me in a pious devotion that is prayed daily, from the feast of St. Andrew, November 30 until Christmas Eve, December 24 – the St. Andrew Christmas Novena, that is sometimes called the Christmas Anticipation Prayer. Others refer to it as the “Christmas Miracle Novena.” It is piously believed that whoever recites the short prayer fifteen times a day, from the feast of St. Andrew on November 30th until Christmas, will obtain what is asked!

It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-eighth.

Abraham Lincoln, Thanksgiving Day Proclamation (excerpt), October 3rd 1863

Ora è ben noto quel che lo Stato totalitario e antireligioso esige ed attende da lei come prezzo della sua tolleranza o del suo problematico riconoscimento. Esso, cioè, vorrebbe

una Chiesa che tace, quando dovrebbe parlare;

una Chiesa che indebolisce la legge di Dio, adattandola al gusto dei voleri umani, quando dovrebbe altamente proclamarla e difenderla;

una Chiesa che si distacca dal fondamento inconcusso sul quale Cristo l’ha edificata, per adagiarsi comodamente sulla mobile sabbia delle opinioni del giorno o per abbandonarsi alla corrente che passa;

una Chiesa che non resiste alla oppressione delle coscienze e non tutela i legittimi diritti e le giuste libertà del popolo;

una Chiesa che con indecorosa servilità rimane chiusa fra le quattro mura del tempio, dimentica del divino mandato ricevuto da Cristo: Andate sui crocicchi delle strade (Matth. 22, 9); istruite tutte le genti (Matth. 28, 19).Diletti figli e figlie! Eredi spirituali di una innumerevole legione di confessori e di martiri!

È questa la Chiesa che voi venerate ed amate? Riconoscereste voi in una tale Chiesa i lineamenti del volto della vostra Madre? Potete voi immaginarvi un Successore del primo Pietro, che si pieghi a simili esigenze?

Address of His Holiness Pius XII to the Faithful, February 20, 1949
