Hail and 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 the 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.
It is piously believed that whoever recites the above prayer fifteen times a day from the feast of St. Andrew (Nov 30) until Christmas will obtain what is asked.
