We really know very little about Saint Zeno of Nicodemus. We know that he was a Roman soldier during a time of great persecution of Christians (remember that back then, all Christians were Catholic. It is of interest to note that when we say we are Catholic or refer to our Faith as being Catholic, we are using a secular term. The Church has never given itself a name. Note that most Papal Documents start with "To the Church"). Another thing that we do know is that he laughed at and mocked Diocletian as he was making an offering to a Roman god or goddess. As punishment, his jaw was shattered and he was beheaded. He died in the year 303.
Saint Andrew's Christmas Novena
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 a stable, in the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, we beseech Thee, O my God, to hear our prayers and grant our desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.
(Prayer copied from EWTN)
