A small gelatinous silver print of a habited nun kneeling before the cross. The cross is surrounded by clouds and light, and is adorned with a reed branch, a crown of thorns, a spear, and an eucharistic chalice. An angel is placing a crown of stars on the nun's head. Below the print is a quote from Saint Thèrése. The back of the card has a handwritten inscription commemorating the profession of religious vows by a Sister of Saint Joseph of Lynn, Massachusetts.
Oh! qu'il est beau de s'immoler pour Dieu. Le plaisir de la terre, c'est l'Immolation. St. Thérèse (front) A mon cher Papa. Souvenir de Profession. 22 juillet 1934. de Sr. Marie Ernest. (back)
