According to tradition prayed 15 times a day from St. Andrew’s Day (30 November) until Christmas
Hail and blessed be the hour and moment
in which the Son of God was born
of a most pure Virgin Mary
at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold.
At that hour vouchsafe, O my God,
to hear my prayers and grant my desires:
(Mention your intentions here)
through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ,
and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.
