If you've grown up Catholic, it's almost a given that at one time or another you've received a holy card. You might have started your collection with one you received for your first Communion, and built it up with cards earned with correct answers in religious education class.

Like scapulars, miraculous medals and little bottles of holy water, holy cards were standard equipment for the pre-Second Vatican Council Catholic.
