This is THE time honored most serene painting of the Immuclate Heart of Mary, and the prayer is beautiful. I have had one for many years. As they are laminated they will last forever. I have given many to the sick, and have left them in the hospital rooms of dying friends and relatives. This card is now difficult to find as the "modern" pictures of the Blessed Mother show her as a young moviestar, instead of the serene Mother of God.
The IHM card is laminated which is a wonderful. I pray the novena often, so there's a lot of wear and tear. The laminate will protect it.
this card is a wonderful addition to notes etc
