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 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.
To be recited 15 times a day from the Feast of St. Andrew's (November 30) until Christmas.
(Fedora Doff to Drew at the Shrine of the Holy Whapping.)
