This The Beautiful Hands of a Priest Holy Card features a picture of a priest during the mass on the front. On the back there is a prayer:
We need them in life's early morning,
We need them again at its close;
We feel their warm clasp of true friendship,
We seek it while tasting life's woes.
At the altar each day we behold them,
And the hands of a king on his throne
Are not equal to them in their greatness
Their dignity stands all alone.
And when we are tempted and wander
to pathways of shame and of sin,
It's the hand of a priest that absolve
us not once, but again and again.
And when we are taking life's partner
Other hands may prepare us a feast
But the hands that will bless and unite
us is the beautiful hand of a priest.
God bless them and keep them all holy,
For the Host which their fingers caress,
What can a poor sinner do better
to ask Him to guide thee and bless?
When the hour of our death comes upon us
May our courage and strength be increased.
By seeing raised over us in blessing
The beautiful hands of a priest!
