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.
Neroccio di Bartolomeo de’ Landi
Neroccio di Bartolomeo de’ Landi (1447–1500) was an Italian painter and sculptor of the early-Renaissance or Quattrocento period in Siena, Italy. He was a student of Vecchietta. In 1468 he began sharing a workshop with Francesco di Giorgio from 1468. He painted Scenes from the life of St Benedict, now in the Uffizi in Florence, Italy, probably in collaboration with di Giorgio, and Madonna and Child between Saint Jerome and Saint Bernard, which is in the Pinacoteca Nazionale of Siena. In 1472 he painted an Assumption for the abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, and in 1475 he created a statue of Saint Catherine of Siena for the Sienese church dedicated to her. He separated from di Giorgio in 1475. In 1476, he painted Madonna and Child with St. Michael and St. Bernardino, a triptych now located in the Pinacoteca Nazionale of Siena. In 1483, he designed the Hellespontine Sybil for the mosaic pavement of the Cathedral of Siena, and the tomb for the Bishop Tommaso Piccolomini del Testa.
