Card-Carrying Catholic

A response to: Urging Catholics to Be Card-Carrying Members

Share this Entry

I am 56 years old and have carried a thin plastic card such as this in my wallet since high school. It is pretty well worn now, but it states this same sentiment, “I am a Catholic. In case of accident or danger of death call a priest.”

The card is white, most of the lettering blue, but the important bits are bolded red letters. Long ago, I added in pen, the word “please”.  I hope that someday if needed, this request would be honored by emergency personnel. The flip side of the card states, why I am a Catholic.

I love my God, my faith and my Church … the last faces I hope to see are loved ones and a priest. I’d never leave home without it.
