Small-format prints bought and/or consecrated at places of pilgrimage were intended for private contemplation. They usually show the place of pilgrimage and its miraculous image. On the back one often finds a prayer. They are provided in various languages for international pilgrims. Kept in a prayer book or wallet they are an expression of piety and lend the saint invoked in the prayer tangible presence.
