I thought every Catholic carried some-
thing like this
Over on Fr. Mildew's blog, he mentions the difficulty UK hospital chaplains have in finding out if patients are Catholic. He mentions the roadblocks he's seen in the UK and wondered if people could tell him the situation in various countries.
I got to thinking along those lines. When I was growing up in the Catholic schools and in the home, we were taught it was a good idea to carry an "in case of emergency" card. I.E. a card that identified you as a Catholic, so that "they" could notify a priest so you could receive last rights or whatever other assistance you needed (like visits and Communion, etc.)
On the back of mine it has spaces for places/people to contact - i.e. relatives/close friends -- I added my parish information. As a single person without immediate family I find this particularly useful. But is it still common practice for people to carry such cards?
