Italian prayer cards? Need translation

Post by London82 » 10 Aug 2013, 03:55

Are these prayer cards in regards to particular people who died? If so who? Do you know what church they are from?

These are prayers:
Prayer to the Virgin Mary, Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and a prayer to St. Rosalia ... each identifies the "imprimatur" or approval of the church.

Hi!
I am a collector of "immaginette" the sacred images with an approved prayer on the other side, that people, and especially women, kept in their prayer books. Can you please post the photos of the illustrated side? I think the first one is a prayer to St. Joseph and seeing the other side can be useful
Ciao

Ciao, Paola :-)

You are correct, it is a prayer to St. Joseph - he is, of course, Sposo di Maria Vergine...
I looked too quickly -
