Scripture Reference:

Description: The left page features an amalgam of Christian imagery, figures, and symbols. In the foreground, Jesus reclines on a throne decorated with the Sacred Heart flanked by four angels bearing shields and swords. In the background to the left, the archangel Michael battles Satan, portrayed as a reptile-like being with human legs. In the upper right corner hangs a painting of the Virgin Mary cradling the baby Jesus. At the top left of the scene, Jesus, the Holy Spirit as a dove, and God the father are stationed in the heavenly clouds looking down on the earth. Two verses from the Old Testament, Song of Solomon 5:2 and Psalm 120:3, caption the image at the bottom of the page. The right page features a German prayer written across an ornamental curtain.
