United States, Minster (Ohio),


A priest kneels before a table holding a eucharistic chalice. A transparent Jesus is placing a crown of thorns upon the priest's head. The back of the card has an inscription commemorating the first solemn mass of Father Lawrence Schmieder in Minster, Ohio on March 22, 1936. The back includes quotations by Father Peter Julian Eymard and from the Missal. This card was printed by an unknown American publisher.
