The Rosary
4.25x2.75" Holy Card / Prayer Card Reproduction

This beautiful, ornate holy card was done around 1860 by Louis Turgis, one of the great holy card makers of mid-19th Century Paris. He pulled out all the stops, using all that was possible with the technology of the day. Starting with his engraving, with all its details of scapular, litany, and so forth, he added the new process of lithography to provide an image of great intricacy and precision now topped with a lovely, nuanced coloration, all in a holy card less than 3x5 inches. The results must have been stunning to contemporary Catholics!

On the back we have added a series of quotes about the Rosary from Saints and the Blessed Mother herself that we think will help deepen people's devotion to the Rosary. It's easy to learn how to say the Rosary, but we wanted to share with people _why_ to say it.

Sister Lucia of Fatima said that every problem, no matter how difficult, can be solved with the Rosary, and we believe that. That's one of the quotes. See the illustration for more.

The Rosary on the back was Sue's mother's rosary. The photograph was taken by our son Ben.

We sell our holy cards and postcards at a low cost to hopefully spread the word to many people.

Thank you for your interest!

Be with Christ,

Sue and John
