Description
Missioni della Consolata - Nyeri (Kenya). Gigli e rose a Maria : purezza e amore." Three girls kneel before a statue of the Virgin Mary, the statue being raised on a rough-hewn stone pillar. Around them, potted plants can be seen, and the corner of a building's roof.
The back of the postcard is addressed and postmarked. Printed in the correspondence section is "Torino data del timbro postare. Preg. Signore. Abbiamo il piacere di notificare alla S. V. che ci pervenne l'elemosina gentilmente inviataci per celebrazione di S. Messe. Tali offerte sono di grande utilita alle nostre missioni e not l'assicuriamo che le S.
