Send blessings to the newly Confirmed soldier of Christ with our Our Lady of Pentecost Confirmation Holy Card! The front powerfully depicts the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove in front of illumined stained glass coming down in flames upon an enraptured Mary, the Holy Spirit's spouse, and the Apostles. Remind yourself and the fully empowered soldier of the great responsibility Confirmation bears but also of the great glory that it is to be "sealed" by the Holy Spirit.

This image "Pentecost" by Jean II Restout depicts the coming of the Holy Spirit. The original was painted in the 1700s for the Monastery of St. Denis outside France and was placed in their dining hall. At some point, the canvas was vandalized and cut into the rectangular dimensions we have now. It is on display at the Louvre in Paris and stands just over 15 feet high, and 25 feet wide. 

This 2.5"x4.5" card is available as a laminated single, a laminated pack of 25, and a paper pack of 50. It adds the perfect personal touch to a Confirmation gift! Designed, finished, and printed at our shop by local workers in Steubenville, Ohio.

 

Back Text Reads:

May your reception
of the gift of the Holy Spirit
on the day of your
Confirmation empower you
to be Christ's witness to your
home and to all the world.
 
"But you will receive power
when the Holy Spirit has
come upon you; and you will
be my witnesses in
Jerusalem, in all Judea and
Samaria, and to the ends of
the earth."
-Acts 1:8
