A wreath of silver flowers encircles Latin text that identifies it as a twenty-fifth anniversary. Below that, an open book shows the pierced hand of Jesus on one page, and the Latin words for Obedience, Poverty, and Chastity on the page; a rosary hangs from the book. White lilies are behind the book. A verse from Psalms appears below the illustrations. The back of the card has an inscription commemorating the silver jubilee of an Alexian Brother, Brother Prosper Redel.
25 Ad multos annos! Obedientia Paupertas Castitas. I will pay my vows to the Lord in the courts of the house of the Lord, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. (Ps. 116) (front) Zum Andenken au mein Silvernes Jubiläum als Profess-Bruder der Genossenschaft der Alexianer Brüder 1897 1922 den achten Dezember Bruder Prosper Redel Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (back)
