“And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”-Luke 22:44
“Having bled at every pore, how red His raiment must have been in Gethsemane, how crimson that cloak! No wonder, when Christ comes in power and glory, that He will come in reminding red attire.” – Neal A. Maxwell
