In this French Victorian holy card, Mary is holding the Sacred Heart as well as the baby Jesus, so we get to behold two powerful Catholic Icons in this rare image: The Sacred Heart and the Madonna and Child. The colors are rich and warm, but still have some of that vintage feel. We love this card and think it is beautiful!

The French inscription at the bottom reads, “Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, Pray for Us.” Underneath that it says, “100 days one day at a time for the Associates,” which we think was prayer instructions for an indulgence at the time. There are also words in the gold mandorla (the full halo around their bodies). We’re pretty sure the first word is JÉSUS in the lower left, and clockwise, EST L'ESPÉRANCE, and on the other side DES DÉSESPÉRÉS, which means “Jesus is the hope of the despairing.” (It took us a long time to discern those words!)

A team of Catholic art restoration experts painstakingly restored and perfected this antique French holy card to bring it to you in a full size print as an 5x7. It looks lovely by itself or paired with our matching French Sacred Heart and French Saint Joseph of the Sacred Heart prints.
