Description

Catholic holy card illustrating the vows of consecrated life from the Auguste Martin collection. The front of the card depicts a nun holding a crucifix and rosary, while wearing a crown of thorns. She is surrounded by images of a dove, her order's rulebook, a ball of yarn with knitting needles, and an oil lamp. The back of the card contains a reflection on the vows of women religious; the text is partially obscured. The edges of the card feature intricate lacework. This card was printed by Boumard in collaboration with Ch. Letaille.

Transcription

Ma croix….Mes vœux….Ma règle. Je lui suis unie par des vœux irrévocables; Je suis toute à Lui… Il fait tout en moi!.. O chère Pauvreté….O divine Chasteté!...O sainte Obéissance!..Vous êtes ma joie, ma force, et mon immortel trésor…
