Ordination Holy Card





It is a tradition in the Archdiocese of Atlanta for those being ordained to the Permanent Diaconate to have holy cards made up for the occasion.  For my card, I wanted to use the scene from the "Road to Emmaus"; however, I wanted to find one that represented what I had believed in my heart for a very long time.  That belief is that a man and a woman (or husband and wife) encountered Christ during that journey.  It surprised me to find out how rare it is to find such a depiction in art. 

But thanks for my dear wife, she found an icon written by a nun (Sister Marie-Paul) in the Holy Land.   Its perfect.
