We were quite taken with the icon-style print of Saint Francis that was used for this very special holy card. Saint Francis lived from 1182 through 1226 and is the founder of the Franciscan Order. He is one of the most famous and beloved saints of the Catholic Church. He renounced worldly wealth, preaching the importance of simplicity and poverty based on the ideals of the Gospel. He was known for his love of nature and animals, especially birds.
These lovely holy cards are a bit lighter weight than some others we offer, but the printing is absolutely outstanding. They are a convenient size for use as gifts or bookmarks - measuring 3-1/8 by 4-5/8 inches on heavy cream-colored paper.
The back is blank except for a faint colophon at the bottom, leaving plenty of room for custom imprinting with your own message, or a place to write a note to a friend.
