Hail and blessed be the hour, and the moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary at mid-night at Bethlehem in piercing cold in that hour vouchsafe. O my God to hear my prayer and grant my desires through the merits of our Savour Jesus Christ and of his Blessed Mother amen.
This prayer should be said during the advent of Christmas to gain special favours.
