Antique French Memento Mori "Pray for Our Parents" Holy Card
This very rare antique French prayer card is so sentimental. On the front is an ethereal depiction of two young children kneeling in prayer at a gravestone. The French inscription underneath the illustration translates to "pray for our parents".
On the reverse is a prayer dedicated to parents: Lord, let yourself be swayed by our fierce prayers; be merciful to our parents, deign to forgive them for the faults they may have committed in the short space they spent on this earth, we beg you, Lord, excuse us! Félix, in Paris.
This delicate and exquisite piece of art would look stunning mounted on velvet or set in an antique frame.
2.20” x 3.70”
Circa early 1900s
PLEASE NOTE - there is want appears to be an ink stain in the center of the prayer section
