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 Holy Trinity in Relation to God’s Self and to the World
The depth and detail of the Trinity Holy Card express compactly and elegantly the central Mystery of the Holy Trinity as Father, Son and Holy Spirit in immanent, intra-Trinitarian relationship and the Mystery of the Redemption, the Holy Trinity in “economic” relation to all of creation — especially to all of the members of the human race who are redeemed and called to Eternal Life by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Seat of Mercy — Throne of Grace
The Holy Trinity Card depicts the Mystery of the Holy Trinity as the “Seat of Mercy”: God the Father in Eternity presents Jesus the Christ to humankind as the One crucified in a specific point in time and place in human history who died on the cross for our sins to redeem and save us. The Holy Spirit mediates the love between Father and the Son, as well as the love of the Triune God for all of humanity and creation. The cross is the Holy Trinity’s “Seat of Mercy” and “Throne of Grace.” Seat of Mercy is the English translation of Martin Luther’s Gnadenstuhl, which is in turn the German translation of thronum gratiae (“throne of grace”), the Latin translation of the Greek hilasterion (ἱλαστήριον) of Romans 3:25 (translated in the NIV translation as “sacrifice of atonement”):
God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith.
