Holy Family Hermitage Note Cards


 Product Description

Comes in Packs of 10 with envelopes. From the Backcover:The Camaldolese hermits were founded by Saint Romuald in the early eleventh century. Dedicated to seeking perfection by a life of prayer and solitude, they are the oldest eremitical order in the Church. Holy Family Hermitage was founded in 1959 by members of the Camaldolese Congregation of Monte Corona, which continues a renewal of the contemplative life begun by Blessed Paul Giustiniani in the sixteenth century. The arms of Holy Family Hermitage evoke the dream of Count Maldolus, recounted in the Eremitical Rule of Blessed Rudolph (1080). Maldolus saw a stairway set up between heaven and earth and upon it the white-robed monks of Saint Romuald. Seven steps recall the days of creation and the perfection of nature, while the eighth step rises into infinity and the perfection of grace in union with God. The color white recalls the habits of the monks, and the color blue, heaven. The motto Excelsior, "Ever Higher", calls to the ascent. The crown above the shield symbolizes the Holy Family, the cross between two fleurs-de-lis representing the Savior between the virgins Mary and Joseph. It also evokes Monte Corona, "Crown Mountain".

  1. Classy, Elegant Note Cards 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Dec 2016

    I've used these notecards for years as I admire the crisp, clean and simple design. The fact that the proceeds go to help the Camaldolese Hermits is another added benefit.
