At the shrine featured in the vintage holy cards. Summer 2011.
And remember…it’s a Solemnity…which means that for day..it’s like it’s not Lent! Feast away!
This is from a couple of years ago – pre-K work.
So all I have for you is this. To my mother from her older cousin.
“Say a short prayer for me from time to time…”
I thought this was appropriate:
Name at the top indicates that it was my mother’s. Dates attached to the indulgences on the back indicate post-1934. What interests me is that this is a photograph – I’ve never seen a card like this. Is this a famous crucifix? Was it from a particular shrine? I don’t know.
Today’s Vintage Catholic posting is a little booklet commemorating a young woman’s reception of the sacraments. It says “Juliette” on the back, so I’m thinking it belonged to my great aunt’s – my mother’s mother’s sister. It’s in English, which is interesting to me because while they were living in the United States by that time (having emigrated from Quebec), almost all of the devotional material I have from that side is in French, they were all French speakers, and I know from my mother that Catholic life was conducted in French (and Latin). (My mother went to both Catholic and public grammar schools in Maine during the 1930’s – the public school days were all in English, the Catholic, half in French, half in English).Click on covers for larger views. Feel free to share images.
..no, not this one. The one before.
I’ve posted this before, but it was a while ago, so we’ll make it today’s Vintage Catholic find:
Here’s an interesting little article from the New York Times – March 22, 1915 – briefly describing Masses celebrated in NYC in response to the Pope’s directive to pray for peace.
The text of the prayer is after the jump, if you would like to copy and paste.
