A Prayer Card, Mass Card or Holy Card for Many Uses
Holy cards bear a religious image. Our sheets come blank on the back for your own prayers, favorite verses, or to commemorate special moments such as a First Communion, Confirmation, Ordination, or family reunion. Prayer cards are often distributed at funerals with a favorite prayer or with the name of the deceased. They are used in Sunday schools, religious education classes, and as a way to acknowledge an event on a large scale. Some parishes distribute a prayer card on Mother’s Day, Christmas, Easter and to celebrate anniversaries or other church and school events.
A Reminder and Challenge to Live Like a Child
Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:13-15
Jesus welcomes and embraces the children, while the disciples who rebuked those who brought their children to Jesus look on in confusion. Jesus is teaching his disciples an extremely important lesson here: Not our distinctions or honors or education or status or wealth or power or connections will lead us to God and into God’s Kingdom. Only the virtues inherent to children will do so: simplicity, purity of heart, wonderment, radical trust, and love. We are challenged to learn from and become like our children.
