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 Savior 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 (30th November) until Christmas will obtain what is asked.)
