Antique Lace Holy Card: “Act of Contrition”

$55.00

This is an antique canivet holy card. It shows a veiled woman kneeling on a prie dieu before an altar. On the altar is a large chalice, above which floats the Blessed Sacrament surrounded by a nimbus of light. The scene is replete with Catholic symbolism: lilies representing purity, roses for The Blessed Virgin Mary, and M for the Madonna. Beneath the image is the reminder “Before Communion / Act of Contrition” in French, German, and English. The central image is a black & white lithograph, while the rest of the card is a magnificent combination of lace and embossing.

The reverse side of the card contains a beautiful form of the Act of Contrition:

“O thou who art my Victim, my Judge, my Savior, and my God, what name shall I give thee to tell thee my regret, confusion, pain, and my love! So many times I offended thee and thou forgivest me!...I have been so ungrateful and thou so merciful! O mystery of Christ’s Blood in which the soul finds baptismal purity, I taste thee in thy source. Rather die than profane thee!”

Dimensions: 4" tall x 3" wide
