Rose – A Great Symbol Of Our Faith

Extract from: https://matronite.wordpress.com/2015/10/15/the-meanings-of-the-five-symbols-of-our-faith/

The Rose: The Celestial Mother as the Assumption of our souls. She is the Rose of Heaven and the Rose of Joy. The Rose is known as the Queen of Flowers and so is a fitting symbol for the Celestial Mother.

The five petals of the wild rose contains the same symbolism as does the pentagram or Sacred Star, including the Five Great Mysteries. It is symbolic of Joy, Love and Purity.

In ancient Egypt, it was the emblem of immortality and beauty and was the flower of Isis. The Red Rose of Venus and Isis later became the symbol for the Blessed Virgin Mary in Christianity, who became known as Rosa Mystica or Mystical Rose.

~
The symbolism of the Rose, which is known as the Lotus of the West, is complex. What is relevant to us is the hidden heart at the center which conceals the Secrets of the Divine Mystery.

~

The opening petals of the Rose symbolize the unfolding of higher consciousness and the life of the soul, itself.

~

Our Faith teaches us that our hearts are temples which are in the shape of a Rose and so, in the Deanic Faith and in the Marian devotions within Catholicism, the Heart of Dea and the heart of Mary have always been symbolized by the rose or being surrounded by roses.

The Rose was sacred to the Great Mother, Cybele Who, as legend has it, created the rose. It is sacred to the Fairy Queen. In ancient India, the Great Mother was the Holy Rose. In China, the flower of the Goddess was the red China rose. Inanna, Ishtar, Lakshmi, Chloris, Flora, Demeter, Astarte, Aurora, and Hekate all enjoyed associations with the fragrant Queen of Flowers.

Rosa Mundi is a species of rose. (recorded as far back as the fifteenth century). The color is pale pink to white with deep Rose-pink stripes overlaid. Its fragrance has been described as quite intense to moderately strong. (7)

As Lady Olivia Robertson once stated, “Through the understanding gained of how to live pleasantly with those around us (to become Wholly Love), cosmic awareness begins to dawn. This is a natural awakening of the soul, (just) as a plant grows, flowers and bears fruit. This community of souls interconnected through love and wisdom has been symbolized by medieval philosophers as ‘Rosa Mundi’, a rambling rose bush that grows throughout all spheres, and flowers in the hearts of all beings and existences.” (8) This Rose also represents the Rose of Heaven. As above, so below.

I don’t think there could possibly be a more beautiful way to state the true nature of Rosa Caeli.

Fire is the Element of this Season. Very simply put, we refer to the Fiery Rose Heart of Our Lady. This Divine Fire is the Flame of Love.

~

The Flame has its origin in Love and in the Supernal Fire of the Sun which shines down upon the World. Without this holy fire, the heart grows cold; the soul weakens. The Flame of Love is strong, able to conquer all that is not of Dea within the Temple of the Heart, while illuminating the True Joy within.

And so, the Celestial Mother Mary is known as: Dea, Rose of Joy.

Let us Bless the Holy Mother.
Blessed is She.

Let us thank the Seven Janati of Power.
Thanks be to the Seven Janati.
