Be strengthened by the witness of the saints who have gone before us!
This bundle includes a six-pack of prayer cards (150 total cards) honoring six African American Catholics who are on the formal path to sainthood in the Catholic Church: Venerable Pierre Toussaint (d. June 30, 1853); Mother Henriette Delille (d. Nov. 16, 1862); Mother Mary Lange (d. Feb. 3, 1882); Fr. Augustus Tolton (d. July 9, 1897); Julia Greeley (d. June 7, 1918); and Sr. Thea Bowman (d. March 30, 1990).
The series evokes the contributions of Black Catholics in the United States, who, through their witness to the faith, their great charity toward others, and their love for God in the midst of various sufferings, reflect the light of Christ in today’s world.
