Dominican Rite Sacramental Absolution Wallet Cards Available

I am happy to announce to Dominican Priest readers that Dominican Liturgy Publications is making available wallet-size plastic laminated cards with the Latin formula for Sacramental Absolution according to the Dominican Rite. An image of the front side of the longer Absolution card is to the right. Note that, because of the conversion needed to make the JPG image, a red cross come out as a red square.  On the actual cards that figure is a Cross. Sorry the JPG is a bit fuzzy.

The cards are available in two formats.  One has the longer four-part absolution that I described here.  The other has the "short" absolution for use when there are many confessions or when time is short, as well as the "very short form" for use when there is danger of death and a special form for use during a jubilee. Each card is two-sided. The cards are available two ways.

If you simply want the PDF itself to double-side print and laminate yourself, email me at the address available for me on the left sidebar and I will email you the PDF file you prefer.  Tell me whether you want the long version or the short version or both.  The text will print double-sided on 8 1/2 x 11 paper, which you then trim and laminate.  There is no charge for these PDFs.

Or you can order the laminated card itself.  In that case, mail me by U.S. post a self-addressed stamped envelope and $2.00 for each card. (This is the cost of printing and lamination.) I will make the card and mail it to you.  Let me know which of the two cards you want or whether you want both.  This mail order method is limited to 2 cards maximum per customer ($4.00 total) .  The address to which you mail your order is:
