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 Sign of Mercy, Reconciliation and Forgiveness
The Prodigal Son and Welcoming Father is a powerful symbol of the healing and transforming power of love expressed as forgiveness, mercy, reconciliation and acceptance. The wonderful biblical image of the patient, long-suffering father reunited with his prodigal son is depicted here (Luke 15:11-32). Too often we forget that the God of the Christian faith is most essentially the God of mercy and forgiveness. In his homily on March 17, 2013, Pope Francis gently chided us: The Lord never tires of forgiving us. Never! We, we are the ones who tire of asking for forgiveness! This solid bronze cross reminds all of us never to tire of asking for forgiveness when we need to, and never to tire of forgiving others when they need us to.
