Want to promote the New Evanglization?
Looking for something to give a bishop, priest or seminarian?
Want to complete that Mass kit or home altar?
The “Society for the Preservation of Roman Catholic Heritage” (SPORCH … yah, I know) has developed extremely convenient and well-made portable, altar cards that are perfect for a priest’s Mass kit, or setting up on a side altar, etc.
Here they are. I include a standard holy card for perspective.
The package folds open. The two cards for the Gospel and Epistle sides are detached, and the center card opens like a triptych. Included is a card with vesting prayers and, on the flip side, the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar. I does not have the Prayers After Mass.
The text on the main cards does not include accent marks, for pronunciation of the Latin. The accents are included on the separate card of the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar.
I noted that in the said Prayers, the Latin “I” is used, but on the altar cards, “J” is spotted for “Jube” and “Jesus” (insert biretta tip here). However, in the vesting prayers we find “Iugum”. Other than that, I didn’t spot any typos.
The Vesting Prayer/Foot of Altar card is pretty flexible, but it is plastified (if that’s a word). It should be durable.
That black part behind the lighter text is a fabric reinforcement. They were made the last.
That gold thing is a velcro tab that holds the package closed.
This is going into my Mass kit right now.
“But Father! But Father!”, are are surely saying. “Where I can get one?… or two? Are you getting a commission, as you do for Mystic Monk Coffee”?
I wish I were! I hope they sell thousands of them!
But here is the tag on the back and here is a LINK.
Kudos. This was a great idea.
