Description

Designed for our 2021 Christmas Card Collection, this card features the 17th century painting “Sagrada Familia” by the Spanish artist, Alonso Cano. The image was selected to mark the closing of the Year of St. Joseph during which Pope Francis invited the faithful “to increase our love for this great saint, to encourage us to implore his intercession and to imitate his virtues and zeal” (Patris Corde, no. 7). The seasons of Advent and Christmas are an especially ideal time to learn from St. Joseph how to love Jesus and Mary, and to seek through his fatherly heart “the grace of graces: our conversion” (ibid.).

Each pack includes ten 5″x7″ cards and envelopes (click image to enlarge):

On the back cover:

“Saint Joseph, our Father and Lord: most chaste, most pure. You were found worthy to carry the Child Jesus in your arms, to wash him, to hug him. Teach us to get to know God, and to be pure, worthy of being other Christs. And help us to do and to teach, as Christ did. Help us to open up the divine paths of the earth, which are both hidden and bright; and help us to show them to mankind, telling our fellow men that their lives on earth can have an extraordinary and constant supernatural effectiveness.”
