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 prayers and grant my desires through the merits of Our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His Blessed Mother. Amen.
This prayer is recited 15 times a day from the feast of St Andrew until Christmas.
