The nice people at SPORCH… yes, SPORCH, sent me – some time ago mind you – their newly revised Roman Rite folding, travel altar cards (for the Extraordinary Form).

I had written about the first version of their cards them some time ago, but they have in the meantime improved them. Here are some pics.
I have used their first set when travelling. I really liked them. These are better.
The cards followed me around a bit until they finally reached my proper address. The letter they came with indicates a price of only $69 and there is a bulk discount. I don’t know how many “bulk” includes.
The first improvement I noticed is that, instead of having a bit of velcro as a closure, they now embed a fairly strong magnet.
The two outer wings fold in, over the two side altar cards, mounted on heavy board (like the cover of a hard-bound book) and over two additional cards with the prayers at the foot of the altar and at the end of Mass.
I wonder if they include a version with prayers for the Queen, which those of you in the UK could use.
I prefer a less busy type-face, but these are nevertheless easily legible.
Now for the Requiem cards. For comparison… with a common tea spoon as a reference for size.
They seem sturdy and durable.
These would be a great gift to seminarians and all priests. They are perfect for a travelling Mass set.
