The Blessed Virgin Mary, wearing blue and red robes, sits with the Baby Jesus in her lap. Her head is encircled with stars. Jesus is wearing a white robe and holding a black sash. The back of the card has an inscription commemorating the ordination and first mass of Father P. Andreas Ehlinger in Fribourg, Switzerland in July of 1933.
