The word ALLELUIA is in embossed gold foil on an orange ground with a gold colored cross in the background. An explanation of the history of the use of the Alleluia is included on the back of the card.
The word “Alleluia” (meaning “Praise God” in Hebrew) is so closely identified with the joy of Christ’s resurrection that it is not sung during the entire season of Lent. In some medieval communities it was actually lettered on a scroll and buried on the eve of Ash Wednesday. The Alleluia was then—and still is today—“resurrected” and proclaimed again in all its splendor on the joyous feast of Easter.
