prayer card

       This card is from the pilgrimage church at Fuchsmühl. Each of these folders contains a prayer on the back. For reasons of space, I did not reproduce the obverse sides of these folders. However, an example of the kinds of prayers printed there is the one found on this card. The translation is mine.

O holy Virgin,
I come to you in this your place of favor. Knowing that you have so often brought health to the sick, consolation to the dejected, help to the forsaken, forgiveness for the sinner and graces through your intercessions, I beg you to help me also .... now and at the hour of my death. Amen.*

       Below is the card unfolded.
