At Christmastime, St. Josemaria Escriva loved to sing Christmas carols. It was a cherished tradition he learned from his parents as a child, and that he would continue to share and enjoy with others throughout his life. He loved traditional carols in Spanish, French, Italian, and English. He believed that carols with simple prose, but theological depth, lead the faithful to prayer and contemplation of the Biblical scenes of the Nativity.
Inspired by this joyful tradition, our “Christmas Carols Card Set” features three hand-lettered and illustrated lyrics from traditional Christmas carols enjoyed by St. Josemaria. Each pack includes twelve 5″x7″ cards and envelopes (four of each card design). Click image to enlarge:
The covers were custom illustrated for the St. Josemaria Institute by Tisa Muico of Friends in High Places. Tisa is a Catholic artist and illustrator based in Canada. She likes making new Saint friends and drawing them, drinking a good cup of coffee or london fog, reading fiction and journaling.
