Hail and blessed be the hour and the 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.

Today is a blessed day to reach out to others and share the faith in Jesus Christ, Our Lord, as the son of God, begotten by the Virgin Mary.
