This Nativity card features an illumination manuscript image by the Master of Imola, a 13th century Italian artist.
The Latin text on the red banners in the image read:
"Ora pro nobis quia Mulier Sancta est"
"Ora pro nobis Sancta Dei Genetrix"
"Remember, Creator of the world, that long ago, at Your birth, You took our body’s form from the Virgin’s holy womb.
The present day, as it comes round every year, bears witness to this - that You, the only-begotten of the Father, have come to be man’s salvation."
-Hymn from the Divine Office
