Card measures 2 1/2 inch by 4 1/2 inch. Back of card reads: Comfort of those who Mourn – The great and sad mistake of many people, among them even pious persons, is to imagine that those whom death has taken leave us. They do not leave us. They remain! – Where are they? In darkness? Oh, no! It is we who are in darkness. We do not see them, but they see us. Their eyes, radiant with glory, are fixed upon our eyes full of tears. Oh, infinite consolation! Though invisible to us, our dear dead are not absent. I have often reflected upon the surest comfort for those who mourn it is this: a firm faith in the real and continual presence of our loved ones; it is the clear and penetrating conviction that death has not destroyed them, nor carried them away. They are not even absent, but living near to us, transfigured: having lost in their glorious change no delicacy of their souls, no tenderness of their hearts, nor especial preference in their affection; on the contrary, having in depth and fervor of devotion, grown larger a hundredfold. Death is for the good, a translation into light, into power, into love. Those who on earth were only ordinary Christians, become perfect; those who were beautiful become good; those who were good become sublime. Made in Italy!

|Review:||Once I came across this card I treasured it both for myself and for (too) many of my close friends who were in mourning. What I think impressed me so was that it reinforces what we believe and what is true during a time when we can easily surrender to grief. And the last line is unforgettable!
