This unadorned Navajo Christ moves forward beyond the frame, and with his hands initiates a welcoming embrace. His compassionate countenance bears the marks of human suffering summoning us to transform our own.
Traditional iconography gives witness to the human face of the Sacred. This icon, imaged in the features of America’s indigenous peoples, reveals anew that sacred power. It celebrates the soul of the Native American as the original spiritual presence on this continent, and as a prophetic sign, it celebrates the reconciliation of the spiritual vision of Native and Christian peoples of this land.

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
(This prayer is printed on the back of Prayer Cards only.)
Let us pray that the Holy Spirit inspires you to seek the way of the Lord on your Confirmation day and always. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes to you; and you will be my witnesses ... to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)
(This greeting is printed on the inside, right panel of Confirmation Cards only.)
