A little break: some beautiful holy cards from yesteryear September 11, 2015

We can’t be all down and critical all the time.  I try not to be, but there is a very great deal to be critical of right now.

Nevertheless, our Faith, in the Mystical Body, remains perfect and incorrupt.  It is always child-like and utterly sincere.  I like holy cards from many decades ago because they transmit that child-like simplicity and simple love.  I find the scenes in these holy cards quite edifying in addition to being more beautiful than most of the cards we see nowadays (some of which are quite lovely, but I see few as beautiful as some of those below).  All the images come from Holy Card Heaven, one of my longtime favorite sites.

I hope you enjoy!  As for me, we’re off to the air show at Alliance Airport tomorrow so you might be inundated with Flightline Friday’s next week!
