In Roman Catholic tradition, families enrol the names of their loved ones to be remembered at a Mass on a given day to mark significant moments in life. In Whitefriar Street Church, Mass is offered each week for those whose names are enrolled in the Share Mass Intentions Book. These names are included in the weekly Share Mass for a year from the date of enrolment.
On the front of this card, which has flowers and an image of a handwritten letter in the background, are the words ‘With Sympathy … May God strengthen and comfort you throughout the coming days’.
When the card is opened out, on the left hand page are the words ‘Lord, welcome our Brothers and Sisters to Paradise and help us comfort one another with the assurance of our Faith, until we all meet in Christ’. The card is signed by the Prior of Whitefriar Street Church.

[Recipient’s name] will share in special Masses day after day throughout the year and in Prayer of the Carmelites at Whitefriar Street Church, 56 Aungier Street, Dublin. … With sincere sympathy from [sender’s name]’.
