King of Heaven

"The sovereigns of the earth do not always grant audience readily;
on the contrary, the King of Heaven, hidden under the eucharistic veils, is ready to receive anyone..."
St. Alphonsus Liguori

I've been enjoying your blog for awhile via google reader. You have a wonderful collection of holy cards and this card is especially beautiful. Every detail sends the eye back to the eucharist. I especially love the alter boys strewing the roses.

I agree with bobbie, Micki, every detail does send the eye back to the eucharist, and the altar boys are fabulous! The detail is astounding - an astonishing card, as always. Thank you.
Best Regards, Lynneda

Hi Micki,

Thank you for your generous contribution to the web. Your Holy Cards and prayers are a blessing in my life and I know so many others as well.

(P.S I have tried to reply to your email and it came back blocked by spam).

Bobbie - Welcome. Thank you. I like to think of these cards as "God's Family Album." This is a new image for me and I agree that the eye is just drawn in with all the detail.

Lynneda - Isn't it fun to see how everyone feels about the art shown? Praise God for artists.

Prayerflower - Thank you for emailing me. I don't know why your second one didn't come through. I love how you put the card on your site. It is a beautiful site and I've added you to my links.

What a marvelous image and what a great comment to accompany it.

Nice border too!

Hmmm, what would it take to wrest this one into MY collection . . . ? Oh okay I'll just make a copy :-)
