Advent Novena
Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Blessed Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, O my God, to hear my prayers and grant my desires, through the merits of our Savior, Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother.
Recite 15 times a day from November 30 to December 25.
Imprimatur:   Michael Augustine, Archbishop of New York, February 6, 1897.
