Good Character and loving spirit with a giving heart, who walk in the light of the Wisdom of The Holy Spirit, this rose comes straight from heaven and which is to be planted in the garden of your soul. It cannot possibly harm the sweet-smelling flowers of your contemplations; for it is a heavenly rose bush and its scent is very pleasant. It will not in the least interfere with your carefully planned flower-beds; for, being itself all pure and well-ordered, it inclines all to order and purity. If it is carefully watered and properly attended to every day, it will grow to such a marvellous height, and its branches will have such a wide span that, far from hindering your other devotions, it will maintain and perfect them. Of course, you understand what I mean, since you are spiritually minded; this mystical red rose symbolizes within the fabric of Jesus’s and Mary’s in life, death and eternity.
The Joyful Mysteries, the thorns the Sorrowful ones, and the flowers the Glorious Mysteries of Jesus and Mary. The buds are the childhood of Jesus and Mary, and the open blooms show us both of them in their sufferings, and the full-blown roses symbolize Jesus and Mary in their triumph and glory.
A rose delights us because of its beauty: so here we have Jesus and Mary in the Joyful Mysteries. Its thorns are sharp, and they prick, which makes us think of them in the Sorrowful Mysteries, and last of all, its perfume is so sweet that everyone loves it, and this fragrance symbolizes their Glorious Mysteries.
So please do not scorn this beautiful and heavenly tree, but plant it with your own hands in the garden of your soul, by making the resolution to say your Rosary every day. By saying it daily and by doing good works you will be tending your tree, watering it, hoeing the earth around it. Eventually you will see that this little seed which seems so small now, will grow into a tree so great that the birds of heaven, that is, predestinate and contemplative souls, will dwell in it and make their nests there. Its shade will shelter them from the scorching heat of the sun and its height will keep them safe from the wild beasts on the ground. And best of all, they will feed upon the tree’s fruit, which is none other than our adorable Jesus, to whom be honour and glory forever and ever. Amen.
On a spiritual level, red roses symbolize passion and sacrifice. They have come to be associated with the Virgin Mary by Christianity and the search for divine love
Deep commitment, love, adoration; with reverence for divine purpose. How heavy our responsibility in this life: what keeps us going is the love of thee; hear our cry beautiful Queen Mary Mother of God, for the love we have for you shall not be taken. No matter what trails and tribulations; to take away our nation they try to wipe out memories of our people, culture and land; why they do this we still don’t understand; until the day we see you once again, we continue standing strong rightly dividing the rights from the wrongs; we have you to thank for this the Wisdom and Love and happiness gifts of your divine wisdom and insight; oh joyous pain, this crazy life is; One thing we do know for certain you send for your children with your warm embrace, bright as a star the brightest of them all so bright that the unrighteous do fall, while your children are the rays of your sunlight brighter than the palest moonlight
