In this antique French holy card, Jesus is opening his arms to us, welcoming us. In the Roman Catholic Church, the term "Sacred Heart" means the interior life of Jesus, His thoughts and will and feelings. So Jesus is welcoming us into deep intimacy with His inmost being. What an incredible invitation!
The colors are rich and warm and have that vintage feel. This is a companion to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart and St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart, designed by the same artist.
The words in the gold mandorla (the full halo around his body) are "Aimé Soit Partout Le Sacré Coeur de Jésus." They translate to “May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be Loved Everywhere." The words at the bottom say, “Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have Pity on Us." The phrase below in parenthesis says, “100 days of indulgence,” which meant if you did some prayers on the back of the card, for a certain length of time, the act would fulfill an item from the Vatican-issued Enchiridion Indulgentarium (Handbook of Indulgences) and allow you 100 days less in purgatory.
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. It looks lovely by itself or paired with our matching French Sacred Heart and French Chaste Heart prints.
