Holy Images Crusade

Holy Images Crusade

Two images; unlike any other.  One, drawn by the Hand of God; the other, drawn in direct obedience to His command, so that “whosoever venerates it may not perish.”

 As we are now left with only a few grains of sand left in the hourglass of the Time of Mercy, it is time to flood our corrupt generation with these two images.

 Over the years I have developed unique methods of getting them out; here I provide a structure for anybody who would like to do what I have done.  I encourage you to do so and to send a link of this post to others, that they too may follow suit.

 Let this indeed be a Crusade; one of far greater importance even than the Crusade waged in centuries past to protect Christendom from Islamic takeover.  For in this Crusade we battle not merely against flesh and blood, but against the Prince of this World as he prepares for his ultimate battle against the Church.  We battle not merely an external enemy, but one who has insidiously injected himself into almost every aspect of modern culture.

For examples of how I have put these to use, see:
  • The rear view of my car.  (I do a lot of driving, and go under 60 mph on the highway to save gas – which means tons of people are always passing me – so this is an excellent means of evangelization)
  • The backside of my old business card
  • My banner for outside abortion mills, at rallies, at protests, etc. (Carefully crafted slogans are good, too… but none so powerful as bringing this image to an event)

1. Digital Files

 Divine Mercy Image:

Our Lady of Guadalupe:

Both, combined and sized to fit perfectly on a business card, with a few essential images added inbetween.

2. Printout Options

(If you have a good color printer of your own, give that a try first – but be warned, these will use much ink)
  • FedEx Office Print Online
    • This is the ideal option if you would like a sturdy, laminated letter-sized printout for outdoor use (especially for tacking onto the back of your car)
    • You will want the files in document format to use their printing service, so here they are: Guadalupe, Divine Mercy.  (Or PDF Format: Guadalupe, Divine Mercy)
      • After uploading the documents, choose “Set my own print options,” and when you do so, be sure to select “Ultra Bright White” cardstock, color, and “Lamination with 1/4″ border”
      • The cost winds up being $3 and change for each cardstock, laminated, vibrant color full-page printout.
  • SnapFish
    • I have already uploaded the files onto my Snapfish account, and am able to share these automatically with you, so that you can order them through your account, with this link.
    • Be sure to select the 8″x10″ option.  These cost $2.99.  Good for indoor uses, like hanging on a wall.
  • UPrinting.com (Update 4/2/2014: I have no idea why, but Google flagged my links to UPrinting.com, and I have had to remove them)
    • Perfect for business card sized printouts like this.
      • Using that design, you may either save money by doing only one sided printing, or you can add whatever message or image you would like on the back
      • You may also choose to do a two sided image printout; Divine Mercy being on one side and Guadalupe being on the other
    • Also good for posters, stickers, or sturdy poster-signs.

I would also like to add note of a third essential image; the Sacred Heart image, for Jesus promised to bless any home in which it is prominently displayed and honored.

This website is also wonderful for the Divine Mercy Image.

Various Recommended Applications:

  • Bumper Stickers
    • Must be laminated and mounted with clear packaging tape (or simply specifically have them printed as bumper stickers/car magnets)
  • Hanging Wall Pictures
    • You need not wait until you can afford expensive, framed pictures to decorate your home, office, etc. with holy images – do so right now with a quality cardstock printout and a push-pin or tape.
  • Posters/Fliers
    • For public areas, bulletin boards, etc.
  • Shirts
    • Have the shirt printed for you using an online service, or iron on the image yourself
  • Billboards
    • If you can spare the money, you will be doing enormous good by creating such exposure with a billboard
  • General Stickers
  • Handouts
  • Business Cards
    • Keep a bunch on you and hand them out freely.
  • Lawn Signs
    • Why not edify everyone who walks or drives past your house?
  • Clothing pins

Please feel free to comment with any other suggestions! I will keep updating this post as I continue to develop or come across more methods of promulgating these holy images!

  1. And what about the 3rd commandment?

  2. Dear Dan,

    Are you going to the Divine Mercy Shrine in Stockbridge this Sunday? I think it would be a great way to celebrate such a wonderful feast! And you can show off the images you have on the rear view of your car!

    I hope you are enjoying your time at Holy Apostles College in Cromwell. I hear it’s a great place.

    God bless you and all yours this Easter season!

    A.M.D.G.

    • Yes indeed! I will be there. Looking forward to it.

      God Bless

      • Just discovered this blog. Wow….some posts

        I will maybe see you on Sunday! I will keep an eye out for a purple Escort with the images of Jesus and Mary on them!

        So you say you are a lay student at Holy Apostles College now. Have you ruled out the idea of becoming a priest, or are you still discerning while you’re a lay student?

        A.M.D.G

      • Hmmmm well I am currently courting a wonderful young Catholic lady named Regina, if that answers your question!

  3. Thank you brethren for this.

  4. When one writes a check put at the top: OL of Guad. pray for us, or something on that order. That is what I do whenever I think about it.

  5. Thanks – just printed out a two page article from the Medjugore Magazine – on the Eucharist, and Mass – distributed to some parishners, and with God’s Grace, we may see more participants at Adoration.

  6. Here are some ideas:
    -add as an iron-on image on a canvas bag
    -make it a laptop/tablet cover sticker or a sticker for your smartphone/iPhone…go to: www.http://www.schtickers.com/
    -make a keychain out of it through making it a .jpeg image and go to a store with the Photo Printing Kiosk, there you could make even a ceramic mug, too.
    -make it a background on your computer

    Overall, be creative!

    Have a blessed day and Holy Week!! God Bless Always!!!
