Image is from a turn-of-the-century hand-painted French lace Holy Card celebrating Gaudete Sunday (Latin for Rejoice!) - the 3rd Sunday of Advent when the rose candle is lit in the traditional Advent wreath. The translation is: "Oh, it is beautiful, this happy day. With joy we await His return." The translation is featured on the interior cover or back page of the notebook. The border of Forget-Me-Not flowers is quite popular in antique holy card artwork. The doves symbolizes human souls in search of heaven.
