Catholic Culture: Mourning Stationary

If you ask at a cartoleria in Italy they can show you what they have. 

In the image you see one version of condolence stationary. 

More common, you see a letter page that has a black border completely around the outer page, creating the effect of a black frame.


  1. Dear John,
    Where in Roma could we find such a place for mourning paper?
    Thank you.

  2. This I purchased at the cartoleria on main street in the town of Santa Marinella, near Rome.

    If you just ask at a Cartoleria they will likely have a supply to show you.

    These items are not displayed. You have to ask. I hope this helps.

  3. Why is none of this made available by Catholic suppliers?
