The Golden Rose

 Gold Rose
"the flower of the field and the lily of the valleys"
Songs 2:1

This single blossom gold rose made me remember the Golden Rose
that the Catholic Church commemorates (Rose Sunday)
and blesses every fourth Sunday of Lent,
along with vests and draperies which symbolize hope and joy
amidst Lenten solemnity.


Gold roses are occasionally given to royalties, military figures,
government and Church sanctuaries as a symbol of reverence or affection.
