The Cards Have Arrived...

Woohoo! Finally, despite all my misgivings, I have the cards in my sweaty little paws, two weeks before Easter. I must confess to feeling rather pleased with the final result!

P.S.
Your choice of Easter card is delightful, a reminder to all of us of the huge importance of the priestly ministry..thanks and God bless you.

Beautiful, Mac. Wish the ladies here had similar ideas to you. :D

Thanks for the compliments... but it's not an "Easter" card - it's specifically a thank-you card to be given out at the Chrism Mass, when priests affirm their communion with their Bishop, and reflect on the priestly ministry. It seems to have become a "tradition" in Southwark - this will be the sixth year we've given the cards out!

Such a beautiful card -- and idea. Some time ago my Parish Priest showed me a card from his ordination, the happiness still reaching his face 30 years later. I'm sure these cards will be equally treasured!

Well done. Our priests deserve our support. This is a great apostolate.

you know mulier that the image is our our lady of confidence, the image Blessed Pope XXIII prayed in front of as a seminarian...she is patroness of seminarians too...remember us, and the clergy too!!!


love and prayers for a holy season

Anonymous, I didn't know about Pope John XXIII, but the picture of Our Lady of Trust (or Confidence, pretty much the same, I guess) was referred to by Pope Benedict (and described) when he spoke to the Seminarians in Rome.

I will, of course, remember all seminarians too...
