A little break: some beautiful holy cards from yesteryear September 11, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Art and Architecture, attachments, Christendom, fun, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, history, Our Lady, Tradition, Virtue.
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!
