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 piercing cold.
In that hour vouchsafe, O my God!
To hear my prayer and grant my desires,
Through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ,
And of His Blessed Mother. Amen
It is piously believed that whoever recites the above prayer fifteen times a day from the Feast of St. Andrew, November 30th until Christmas, will obtain what ever is asked.
