Holy Card


#1

:shrug: Hi,

My Great-Grandmother was a convert to the Catholic Church in the late 1940’s/early 1950’s. As a young man, and after her death, I found her bible and there was what I beleive is an old holy card tucked away inside along with other things. The card is no bigger than those of today and pictures Jesus walking through a garden on one side, and on the reverse it is completely blank. No prayer-- nothing. The odd thing about this card, is that on the front side, over the top of the image of Jesus are two drops of blood-- a little smaller than a dime. I believe that they are real drops of blood and not mere images. I have asked many Catholics what this could be or signify and, so far none have been able to tell me. I would like to find out if this has any special significance as it has great meaning to me.

Thanks!
