My prayer card obsession

Prayer cards have been a Catholic tradition going back to the 1400’s in Europe.  As a convert, I was aware of prayer cards and have had a few over the years.  However, now I’ve become obsessed with them.

My prayer card obsession can be blamed on Melanie Rigney.  Melanie surprised me by sending me a small deck of prayer cards the other day.  I was so thrilled that I started looking around for some of mine.  Most of the ones I have I found tucked into my Magnificat.

The first eight are the cards that Melanie sent me.  The rest I accumulated over the years and a few in the last few weeks.

In my new found zeal for prayer cards, I ordered some more on Amazon.

Do you collect prayer cards?
