My mother saw these Catholic Cardlinks talked about on EWTN and asked me to order some. I have to say, I was very impressed by them. The "Prayer" Set features all the standard Catholic Prayers such as the Hail Mary, Glory Be, Our Father, Apostles Creed, How to Say the Rosary, and the Stations of the Cross, as well as several prayers to various saints and prayers for different occasions. On the back of each card is an informative history of the prayer.
The "Patron Saints" Set tells the life stories of many of our most popular saints such as St. Anne, St. Francis, and St. Therese. There are also less well-known saints including St. Albert the Great, St. Erasmus, and St. Rocco. Each card also features the feast day for that saint and what he or she is patron of.
Both sets are graced with beautiful illustrations. The "Prayers" set is decorated with stained glass artwork. The "Saints" cards illustrations are simple in style but have an appealing aspect to them. I believe that these cards were designed for children but they are very informative for adults as well. The "Prayers" set is a great reference for searching for just the right prayer and the "Saints" set is a wonderful way to be introduced to some new role models.
