For close to two thousand years, Bishops have been confirming those entering the Church. Originally the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation were performed at the same time. Around the fifth or sixth century, Bishops in the West began to separate Baptism from Confirmation in young people because of considerations of maturity and coming of age. Local priests would baptize babies. Bishops would confirm the young adults. It is still this way today.

The inscription on this beautiful old holy card reads, “O Holy Spirit, be today and always the strength and the light of my soul.” R. P. means Révérend Père, i.e., Reverend Father. Fr. Marie-Joseph Friaque was a prominent French priest from Bordeaux.

This is a great gift for a young person being confirmed. There are many vintage Confirmation holy cards, of which this is our favorite. We think this one is subtle and beautiful, and the colors look gorgeous on the natural cotton paper we print it on.


Besides this print, we can also print this as invitations or as insert cards for invitations. Contact us for more information.

** 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
– Above story of the art
– Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
