Description

Catholic holy card celebrating priesthood from the Auguste Martin collection. The card features imagery of a priest celebrating the Eucharistic prayer, hearing confession, and administering the Eucharist. These scenes are surrounded by images of grapes and wheat, angels in heaven, and an angel reaching out to people in Hell; the card has a lacework border. The back of the card contains a prayer by Jean-Jacques Olier, founder of the Sulpicians; part of the text is obscured.

Transcription

Souvenir de prêtrise. Quando sacerdos celbrat, Deum honorat, Angelos lœtificat, Ecclesiam œdifict, vivos adjuvat, defunctis requiem prœstat et sese omnium bonorum participem efficit. (Imit.) Le Très auguste Sacrifice de la Messe, offert à Dieu pour les desseins, et dans toutes les intentions de l'Eglise du Ciel, de la terre, et du Purgatoire.
