"Hail and blessed be the hour" CHRISTMAS PRAYER (hailhour.htm)

From Feast of St. Andrew
to Christmas Day
November 30-December 25


From the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle to the Nativity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ one may begin a special prayer, simply called the "Christmas Prayer" to obtain favors if one's requests are in accordance with God's will. It is believed that whoever recites the following prayer with a pious heart 15 times a day from November 30th to December 25th, will obtain whatever is asked. This Christmas prayer carries an Imprimatur from Archbishop Michael Augustine of New York City during the Pontificate of Pope Leo XIII on February 6, 1897. Since one should say this short prayer 15 times a day, it is recommended to memorize it below so you can say it wherever you are or clip the prayer below and insert in your missal or put on your bathroom mirror or wherever you would see it the most.

Clip and put in your missal or on your mirror to say 15 times a day.
