Description

At the top of the card is the Baby Jesus sleeping on a bed of hay. In the center of the card is a quotation in French from Father Leonard Goffiné (1648-1719), a German priest. Below the quotation is a bouquet of pink roses, with grass and leaves visible in the background. Printed on the back of the card are three translations of a prayer for obtaining a plenary Indulgence near death, in English, French, and Italian. The back of the card has the imprimateur permissions from the Archdiocese of Marianapoli (Montreal, Canada) and Auxiliary Bishop Zotique Racicot; the prayers were likely printed there onto cards imported from France.

Transcription

O bien aimé Jésus! Je vous adore dans votre Crèche, comme autrefois vous ont adoré les pieux Bergers et je vous remercie du fond du Cœur d'être descendu du Ciel sur la Terre pour nous racheter. (P. Goffiné) (front) Prière à réciter pour gagner l'indulgence plénière à l'article de la mort. Quiconque, après avoir confessé ses fautes et reçu la sainte Communion, récitera cette prière, même longtemps avant la mort et en pleine santé, gagnera une indulgence plénière qui lui sera appliquée au moment de sa mort. Prière.--Seigneur mon Dieu, dès maintenant, quel qu'en soit le genre et selon qu'il vous plaira, d'un cœur tranquille et soumis, j'accepte de votre main la mort avec ses angoisses, ses peines et ses douleurs. A prayer to be recited for the gaining of a plenary Indulgence at the hour of death. A Plenary indulgence for the hour of death has been granted for the recitation of the following prayer, with a contrite heart, after confession and Holy Communion, on any day according to one's choice: Prayer.--O Lord my God, from now I accept whatever kind of death Thou hast destined for me, with all its anguish, pains and sorrows. Preghiera da recitarsi pér lucrare l'Indulgenza plenaria all'ora della morte. Chiunque, dopo essersi confessato e aver ricevuta la Sta Communione, reciterà guesta preghiera, anche molto tempo prima della morte ed in ottima salute, quadagnerà un Indulgenza plenaria che gli sarà applicata al momento della morte. Preghiera.--Signore mio Dio, da questo momento io accetto qualunque genere di morte, con tutte le sue pene, angosce, e tribulazioni che Voi, o mio Dio, avete servato per me.
