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.
The Theotokos – the “God-Bearer”
In 431 A.D., the Ecumenical Council of Ephesus proclaimed that the Virgin Mary is the Theotokos (Θεοτόκος – Greek for “Mother of God”). She is the Theotokos because she gave birth not to a human being but to God – to God as a human being. Mary was but a young woman (probably still only a teenager) who said “Yes!” to God and God’s plan for her and for the entire world through her. In this simple young woman who was living in a remote corner of the vast and powerful Roman Empire, God indeed “has brought down mighty kings from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly.” (Luke 1:52).
