  • 1943 WWII Christmas Prayer Card with World Mass Clock

    1943 WWII Christmas Prayer Card with World Mass Clock

    This is a wonderful vintage find. It is a Christmas card, New Year’s card, gift card, calendar, and world mass clock all in one. The front image shows soldiers located across the globe with a family standing respectfully on the right. The center is open to show an image of the world covered with a translucent Child Jesus.

    The front page reads:

    At the family hearth...or across the sea,

    This christmas we’ll united be…

    For being in one Christ our Brother,

    We cannot be separate one from another.

    “Merry Christmas”

     

    The front opens vertically to show the New Year card which reads:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR

    Your year of Nineteen-Forty-Three

    Is here enclosed … May it be

    A year so Blessed that you may say of it

    “A Saint’s Blessing was on everyday of it”

     

    This portion folds down to reveal a 1943 calendar with Saints’ days, Holy days, and Fasting days denoted.

     

    Behind the calendar is a free floating translucent sheet signed by the original giver. It reads:

    My Spiritual Gift to You is a Bouquet of Masses being offered for your happiness at the monastery of the Cloistered Sisters Adorers of the Precious Blood… I have placed your name at the Crib, for Remembrances during the Octave of Masses: Christmas to New Year’s.

     

    Behind this sheet is a World Mass Clock with instructions and a beautiful prayer. This allowed the soldier to link his prayers in union with the Mass being said anywhere in the world.

    This card is in exceptional condition.

    Please Note: Only the month of December 1943 is left of the calendar.
