St. Dorothy Prayer Laminated Prayer Cards (Pack of 25)
This beautiful, wallet size - 2 1/2" x 4 1/2", laminated Saint Dorothy holy card, bordered in gold, depicts the first century virgin martyr. When she refused to sacrifice to the gods during Emperor Diocletian's persecution, she was ordered beheaded. On the way to the place of execution, she met a young lawyer, Theophilus, who mockingly asked her to send him fruits from "the garden" she had joyously announced she would soon be in. When she knelt for her execution, she prayed, and an angel with a basket of three roses and three apples brought them to Theophilus, telling him Dorothy would meet him in the garden. Theophilus was converted to Christianity and later was martyred. Her feast day is February 6th. On the back of the card is printed the Prayer to Saint Dorothy.
