A depiction of Austrian painter, Moritz von Schwind's "St. Wolfgang and the Devil" appears on the front of this card. He was known to have the devil help him build a church! Probably because of this, his feast day is October 31 of every year - All Hallow's Eve. His name is invoked as the Patron of Germany and against strokes, paralysis and stomach diseases.

Below the image on the front:

St. Wolfgang
924-994
Bishop of Tegensburg
Memorial - October 31
(All Hallows Eve)
Patron of Germany ~ Invoked against
strokes, paralysis & stomach diseases

St. Wolfgang, pray for us!

On the reverse:

St. Wolfgang was known for his fervent
zeal towards conquering the theological
errors of his time, and through his
teaching he brought the faithful closer
to Christ. Despite efforts to retire into
quiet prayer and solitude, his dedication
to his flock led him back into the
service of his diocese. He embraced the
call to holiness by applying the Faith in
loving service to others; a call that we
too should answer. St. Wolfgang was
known to be a holy and pious bishop
who claimed great spiritual authority
over the evil forces that sought to tear
down the Faith. There is a tradition
that, by invoking the name of Jesus
Christ, and all of the authority in that
Divine Name, St. Wolfgang even forced
the devil to help him build a church,
thus showing Christ's ultimate
conquering of evil. A famous painting
depicting this even is shown on the
front of this card.

The laminated card measures 3-1/2 inches high by 2 inches wide. It will fit in most wallets, if you wish to carry it with you at all times.
