The Miracle of Cana
The miracle of Cana original artwork by Amie Kieffer. Salutation inside reads "May God bless your wedding day and every day forward. As with the miracle of the wine at Cana, 'Do whatever He tells you,' and watch expectantly for the transformative miracles He can work in your lives. You will be amazed at His Vintage." The Back has the text from CCC 1613 "On the threshold of his public life Jesus performs his first sign-at his mother's request-during a wedding feast. The Church attaches great importance to Jesus' presence at the wedding at Cana. She sees in it the confirmation of the goodness of marriage and teh proclamation that thenceforth marriage will be an efficacious sign of Christ's presence."
It takes three to get married by Amie Kieffer was inspired by a bride's reflection on the wedding prayer of Tobit and Sarah....the "noble purpose" of marriage. This card is 5"x 7". The inside reads "Your love is an image of the Creator's. It is good, very good in His eyes." The back is from the Catholic Catechism paragraph 1604. "God who created man out of love also calls him to love-the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being. For man is created in the image and likeness of God who is himself love. Since God created him man and woman, their mutual love becomes an image of the absolute and unfailing love with which God loves man. It is good, very good, in the Creator's eyes. And this love which God blesses is intended to be fruitful and to be realized in the common work of watching over creation."
Wedding Prayer of Tobit and Sara
The story of Tobit and Sara is a classic Old Testament drama only the Bible could produce. Their wedding prayer is a traditional first reading at many weddings. Original artwork by Amie Kieffer. The scene is Tobit and Sara on their wedding night as they light the fish, as directed by the Archangel Rapheal, to ward off the demon who has been plaguing Sara. As in, the demon killed her previous 7 husbands on their wedding nights! The salutation inside is taken from the words of Sara's parents as she prepares for the wedding. "May God grant you joy in your new life together. Live in confidence that you were destined for one another from all eternity. With God as your help. you will bear fruit that will last." The back of the card includes the text from the Book of Tobit 8:1-8 which describes the scene and includes the prayer "Blessed are you, O God of our fathers; praised be your name forever and ever. Let the heavens and all your creation praise you forever. You made Adam and you gave him his wife Eve to be his help and support; and from these two the human race descended. You said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone; let us make him a partner like himself.' Now, Lord, you know that I take this wife of mine not becasue of lust, but for a novle purpose. Call down your mercy on me and on her, and allow us to live together to a happy old age." And Sara said with him, "Amen."
