Send down upon us the Divine Consoler to enlighten our minds and strengthen our wills. You O second person of the most blessed Trinity, who can neither deceive nor be deceived, have promised to be with Your church until the end of time. Give us a mighty faith that we may not falter: help us to do Your holy will always , especially during these hours of grief and uncertainty. May Your most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart of your Holy Mother be our sure refuge in time and in eternity.
amen.

wow very powerful....what was the source? Smile
I think it's funny how Ignatius isn't on there d:
There isn't a source listed. It's just a double sided laminated holy card with this printed on it. There's a stock number of TJP 856, but that's the only other writing on it.

LOL, indeed. But the card was totally crowded with what was there. I guess they just ran out of room!
