The Virgin Mary is shown in profile, wearing blue and white robes. She is holding a branch of white lilies. At the top of the card, above Mary's head, are blue stars. The sides of the card have embossed gold designs. Below Mary are pink and white daisies, and a verse credited to Gerson (possibly Jean Gerson, a fourteenth century French theologian). The back of the card has an inscription commemorating the silver jubilee celebrating twenty-five years of religious life for Sister M. Columba, a sister at Incarnate Word Convent in Hallettsville, Texas, in 1924. Created by Boumard Fils.
