|Saint Gemma handsewn and handpainted cloth relic pouches|
I currently have a large variety of handpainted and handsewn relic pouches (examples shown in the photo above) that I received from the Passionist nuns at Saint Gemma's monastery in Lucca, Italy. I am offering the relic pouches here as a fundraiser for the monastery. I have been told that the relics inside the pouches consist of three things--fragments of Gemma's original casket, pieces of candle wax that was blessed by Pope John Paul II, and blessed palms from the monastery that were blessed and kept next to Gemma's holy remains inside of the main altar of the monastery church.
|Free St Gemma holy prayer card included|
Included with each relic pouch is a free photo holy prayer card (large sized 3-1/2" x 5"). On the back of the free holy card is the following prayer:
"Oh holy Gemma, I am near you, help me to pray. You who know what I and those near me need; look after my urgent needs and my spiritual and material wants. You take care of them! I confide in you and entrust all to your loving care. Offer up to Jesus that tender and constant care that you bore Him here on earth.
Oh holy Gemma, you who physically suffered all the pains of the Passion of Jesus, I beseech of you the grace to meditate on and live the Passion of Jesus, and the sufferings of Holy Mary. Pray that I will be able to walk in the path of humility, simplicity, love and sacrifice, fulfilling at all times and in all ways, the holy will of God. Let me live united with Jesus, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and you, for all eternity. Amen."
I will ship the relic pouch as soon as the donation is received, and I will include a free Saint Gemma holy card with each donation. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My email address is: email@example.com
