Help spread devotion to the Sacred Heart!
Our reproduction of this beautiful Victorian Holy Card comes in a 4x6" size with a postcard type back, suitable for framing or mailing or giving away or just using as a holy card.
Comes in a set of 10 postcards, all with the Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart on the back.
We love antique holy cards, and this is one of the most beautiful we've seen. We've reprinted this Victorian holy card as a post card. It was originally published by Mr. Philip A. Kemper of Dayton, Ohio, in the 1880s and massively distributed worldwide in 238 languages. He received a personal Papal blessing for helping spread devotion to the Sacred Heart.
On the back of our postcard, as on the original, are the 12 promises of the Sacred Heart given to St. Margaret Mary in a Church-approved vision. Please take a moment to read them.
1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life.
2. I will establish peace in their families.
3. I will comfort them in their trials.
4. I will be their secure refuge during life, and, above all, in death.
5. I will shed abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
6. Sinners will find in My Heart an infinite ocean of mercy.
7. Lukewarm souls will become fervent.
8. Fervent souls will rapidly grow in holiness and perfection.
9. I will bless every place where an image of My Heart shall be
exposed and honored.
10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
11. The names of those who promote this devotion will be written in
My Heart, never to be blotted out.
12. I promise thee, in the excessive mercy of My Heart, that My all-
powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion
on the First Friday of nine consecutive months, the grace of final
penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving
their Sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in
this last moment.
