The Baptismal gown of St Louis IX

A treasure of our Church. I have had many arguements with family members who claim that the Church could end poverty if it only would sell off it's riches. my answer is and has always been, who could afford it, and if they can afford it why didn't they use that money to end poverty? Here is an obscure post from a Catholic Blog, Gypsy at Heart... I have used some of the article

The treasury of Notre Dame ...is filled with ornate gold reliquaries dating between the 11th and 17th centuries, St. Louis' white robe and religious chain, huge wooden vestment cabinets painted with colorful scenes from St. Louis' life, and a collection of tiny ivory cameos of every Pope from St. Peter to Pope Benedict XVI...
