This is a lovely keepsake holy card. On the front is an image of a young boy carrying a traditional long candle. Beneath the image it reads: “Souvenir of First Communion”. The card has intricate lacing and embossing, and in the background are a magnificent church altar and windows.
Printed on the reverse is this beautiful prayer:
Souvenir of My First Communion
Thou art mine oh my Saviour! Thou knowest that I love thee: that I desire to love thee always. Oh thou that I so desired to possess, Oh grant that each day of my life, may resemble that of my first Communion. Amen.
There is a name written in pencil beneath the prayer, but no date.
Condition: The lace is torn in a few spots. Please see pictures.
