-St Gemma, pray for us!
"Oh Jesus, to what a state You are reduced! Oh, Jesus has become a plaything for all! They blaspheme Thee, my Jesus, they treat Thee roughly, they curse Thee....Oh Jesus, I am surprised that although I see Thee in the midst of these humiliations, I do not wish to hear them spoken of. If I were able, Jesus, with my blood I should wish...I should wish to wash with my blood all those places where I see Thee outraged!...No more blows on Thee, 0 Jesus. You have not deserved them; I deserve them yes; but You, no! It is I who am the sinner, You art innocent." -St Gemma Galgani

I was wondering if you know of a picture of just Saint Gemma’s dress without the cape. Did the dress have buttons at the front or no?
