What Are Catholic Prayer Cards?
Prayer cards, also known as holy cards or mass cards, are small pieces of quality cardstock paper that have religious images and prayers printed on them. They are often given out at Catholic churches and can be used as a form of devotional prayer. Many people keep prayer cards in their wallets, bibles or other books as a reminder to pray for specific intentions.
The custom of distributing Catholic prayer cards is an old tradition dating centuries back. The oldest surviving Catholic prayer card is St. Christopher and dates back to 1423. The heyday for the production of these cards was the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. At that time, there were many publishers of these cards, and they became quite popular. In the late twentieth century, there was a decline in the popularity of prayer cards. However, in recent years, there has been a resurgence in interest in these devotional items.
Prayer cards typically contain an image of a saint or other sacred figure on one side and a prayer on the other side. Many people keep prayer cards in their wallets or purses as a reminder to pray for special intentions. Others put them in Bibles or missals as bookmarks. Some people frame them and hang them on walls or display them on desks or nightstands. Prayer cards are inexpensive and easy to carry with you, making them ideal devotional items for busy people on the go. Whether you are looking for a specific saint or simply want a beautiful image of Our Lord or His Mother, you are sure to find just the right prayer card to suit your needs.
How to Use Catholic Prayer Cards
Using a prayer card is a very personal thing, and there is no right or wrong way to do it. However, here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your prayer card devotions:
- Choose a saint that you feel drawn to or who intercedes for the type of assistance you need
- Read the prayer on the back of the card and say it aloud. You can also say the Hail Mary, Our Father, or any other prayer of your choice.
- If you are using the card as a bookmark, take a few moments to read the scripture passage before or after you pray.
