"The Christmas Prayer" or the St. Andrew Novena.
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 Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His
Blessed Mother. Amen.

(It is piously believe that whoever recites the above prayer 15 times a
day from the feast of St. Andrew (Nov. 30th) until Christmas will obtain
what is asked.)
Imprimatur: Michael Augustine, Archbishop of New York, February 6, 1897
