"We have loved him in life, let us not forget him in death." - St. Ambrose

"O Gentlest Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls, have mercy on the soul of Thy departed servant. Be not severe in Thy judgement but let some drops of Thy precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames, and do Thou, O Merciful Saviour, send Thy Angels to conduct Thy departed servant to a place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen."

"May the souls of all faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace, Amen. May Jesus grant eternal rest."

The card is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, a few light creases.
