On May 15, 2013 Melissa Villalobos prayed through the intercession of Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman. Little did she know that her prayer would be answered with the miracle that would both heal her and make him a Saint! A neat thing about her story is that she was in part introduced to and developed a devotion to Cardinal Newman through a holy card that we printed.
You can see the screen shots below that show that our proof # 2088, designed in April of 2011, was the card that she is shown holding in a recent news article documenting the miracle. We thought it would be fitting to make this card design, the one she originally had on her mantle, into Cardinal Newman's Commemorative Canonization Prayer Card. The original card layout on the front is the same as the one we designed back in 2011, with the addition of his Canonization date added on the front and a special new prayer on the back. Scroll below for full details....
