The White Rose of Purity

I awoke this morning with an image: "the white rose of purity." In a dream before waking, I gave Christ a white rose, a gift to Him and a symbol of my life. The imagery spilled into my waking moments as a call to a fresh way of being. I saw the white rose not as a statement on my life, but as a symbol of what my life could be. I am now challenged to live my life deliberately and purely, with the hope each thought, word and action will contribute to the white rose I wish to present to Him in the end.

each of the different apparitions of our lady had the same message but put in a different way .
the apparition of '' rosa mystica '' was all about '' purity ''
rosa mystica or mystical rose .
there are so many different types of roses and all colors .
the temples of the holy spirit - our souls different uniqueness - were meant for purity and purity alone . I pray everyone may see the statue of our lady called '' rosa mystica '' ........mary our example is so pure and beautiful in that statue .......she is a white pure rose .......

Thank you for your comments about Our Lady and the Rosa Mystica. I was quite blessed researching this and now see a "greater purpose" in my dream...

God bless you!

Ohe, ma cherie; merci beaucoup plus et plus for this awesome post. More of us should strive to be a 'pure white rose' and you have given me the incentive to push forward in that way.
