Vincentiana Purchase of the Week: Rare Rosalie Rendu Holy Card

This rare late 19th century postcard of Rosalie Rendu does not use the familiar mature portrait image of Rosalie but pictures Rosalie as a younger sister. There is also a scene from the barricades of the Revolution of 1848, and a scene with two members of what is presumably the Saint Vincent de Paul Society. One of these gentlemen can be presumed to be Frederic Ozanam.
