Hail and blessed be the hour and moment
in which the Son of God
of the most pure Virgin Mary,
in the piercing cold.
In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God,
to hear my prayer
and grant my desires,
[State your intention(s) here...]
through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus
and of His blessed Mother.
(Beginning on St. Andrew
the Apostle's feast day, November 30th, the following prayer
is traditionally prayed 15 times a day until Christmas. This is a very meditative prayer
that helps us increase our awareness of the real focus of Christmas
and helps us prepare
ourselves spiritually for His coming.)
Lord and giver of all life,
help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts
to promote the dignity and value
of all human life, born and unborn.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen. continue reading
