Asperges Me / Vidi Aquam Card Just Released

By request, we have just finished designing a nice, full Latin chant notation version of an "Asperges Me / Vidi Aquam" card. It is now listed for sale on our regular business website, Myriad Creative Concepts, for those of you who are interested. It is available as a print or laminated.

This card is letter size with The "Asperges Me" prayers on the front and the "Vidi Aquam" prayers on the back. At the beginning of Roman Catholic High Masses, these prayers are sung as the celebrating priest goes up the aisle sprinkling the congregation with holy water. During Easter Season, he sings the "Vidi Aquam." The rest of the year, he sings the "Asperges Me."

This card is a unique design that we are proud of because it is so complete and the type is nice and large. Its graphics are simple but attractive and consists of a modification of our "Prayers At The Foot Of The Altar" card, also for the Latin Mass.

We hope that you like our design. If there are other cards that you think should also be crafted, just let us know and we will see what we can do.

Thanks for visiting.

Roman Catholic Braga Rite Altar Cards

Hello everyone. I would just like to take a moment to announce the release of our latest graphic designs of Mass Cards for priests and ministers. Nearly two years ago, we were contacted by a Roman Catholic priest from Braga, Portugal to consider designing a set of altar cards for him to celebrate the Roman Catholic Mass according to the Braga Rite. We were thrilled to design them for him. They are  now listed for sale on our business website, Myriad Creative Concepts for others to purchase as well if you are interested.

It took nearly two years to design them because there were several cards to create with specific prayers that not only had to be accurate, but had to be presented exactly right too. Our customer is a very busy priest like all priests are and he could only proof the drafts sent to him when he had some free time to tackle them
We were asked to design artwork for these cards that incorporated ancient Celtic art because many Celts settled into northern Portugal. The "Book of Kells" has many beautiful manuscripts full of beautiful Celtic art and it was suggested that we first look there for ideas. The Book of Kells proved to be a virtual treasure trove of images to pull from to create a hybridization of art suitable in the graphic design of these altar cards. He was thrilled with what we came up with and we hope that you are too.

There are several cards used in the Braga Rite. As we designed draft after draft of each card, our customer meticulously proofread each one until they were absolutely perfect for him. The layout of the prayers is just right, the font complements the art, and the type is crisp and very easy to read.

If we had made these by hand, we would have had to charge him thousands of dollars to make them. But, thanks to modern graphic design software, we were able to create them very inexpensively. This has been one of the most enjoyable experiences that we have had so far designing for priests and ministers.

A complete set of Roman Catholic Altar Cards for the Braga Rite can be found for sale on our website on our Latin Mass Altar Cards Kits page. They are available laminated or as prints to be framed by your local framer. By request, we can professionally frame them for you. Contact us for details.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!
