Two children look out a window at Jesus, carrying a cross-shaped staff, accompanied by an angel carrying a basket of apples. A second angel is carrying a Christmas tree. The border of the card has an embossed gold holly print. This card was printed by an unknown publisher at an unknown date, probably in the early twentieth century. The back of the card has a prayer to the Infant Jesus.


This day is salvation come to this house. (St. Luke XIX.9.) (front) A Child is born to us, and a Son is given to us! Isaias. 9. 7. We salute Thee! O Infant Jesus, We adore Thee! O Infant Jesus, We love Thee! O Infant Jesus, We thank Thee! O Infant Jesus, We praise Thee! O Infant Jesus, We bless Thee! O Infant Jesus, We glorify Thee! O Infant Jesus, We detest our sins! O Infant Jesus, We weep for our ingratitude O Infant Jesus, We promise to amend O Infant Jesus, We are grieved for Thy sufferings O Infant Jesus, We mourn for Thy humiliations O Infant Jesus. Oh, come let us adore the little Babe of Bethlehem! The Jesus, the Saviour, the Redeemer, the Creator and the Judge of the World! Venite Adoremus, Alleluia! With Ecclesiastical Approbation. (back)
