In this French Victorian holy card, Joseph is holding the baby Jesus, who is holding his Sacred Heart. This is very rare in Catholic art to get these two powerful Icons in this same image: St. Joseph and The Sacred Heart. The colors are rich and warm, but still have some of that vintage feel. We love this card and think it is beautiful! This is a companion to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, printed by the same company.

The words in the gold mandorla (the full halo around their bodies) translate into "Go to Joseph. He is powerful by the Heart of Jesus." And the words at the bottom say "Saint Joseph, Model and Patron (for) the Friends of the Sacred Heart." In parenthesis it says, "100 days of indulgence," which meant if you did some prayers on the back of the card, for a certain length of time, the act would fulfill an item from the Vatican-issued Enchiridion Indulgentarium (Handbook of Indulgences) and allow you 100 days less in purgatory.

There was some staining and discoloration on this long out-of-copyright image. We spent time restoring it to its original beauty. Overall, there are tens of thousands of good Catholic images out there, but we work to bring you just the few we love, and to make them as perfect as we can. We want to curate a collection that brings you joy. St. Pope John Paul II said, "In order to communicate the message entrusted to her by Christ, the Church needs art."

We also sell postcards of this image here in our shop.

For framing, a lot of frames would look good with this. Try a warm wood or a gold frame. You can matte it if you want, but you don't have to matte our prints. They look pretty good with the 1.35" (1.5" with the larger paper) white border around the print. All our prints are standard size, so you can easily get a frame you like at Hobby Lobby or online. Convo us if you'd like us to frame it, and we'll find something you'll like.


** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
