This is a unique prayer card created by the Sacred Heart Union in 1880 to encourage donations in support of the union's mission to care for homeless children. The card also serves as a certificate of membership for the Sacred Heart Union. The front of the card is decorated with an engraving of the Blessed Virgin Mary embracing a young child. A lamb walks beside them, and there is a chalice in the background. The caption reads “Suffer with Mary” in French.
The card is signed on the reverse and indicates membership for the year 1880-1881. The reverse contains information about the group: object of the union, spiritual benefits, and membership.
