The Mystical Rose PODCAST (AUDIO & VIDEO): The rose, the queen of flowers, since early times, has come to represent the Virgin Mary, Queen of Heaven. In art, Mother Mary is often depicted holding or surrounded by roses and the rosary (which means “garland of roses”). St. John Henry Newman, in his meditations on the Litany of Loreto, referred to Our Lady as Rosa Mystica, the Mystical Rose, because she “is the Queen of spiritual flowers; and like the rose, she is the most beautiful of all flowers,” and that, "from the first was perfect in her sweetness and her beautifulness, and at length when the angel Gabriel had to come to her, he found her  "full of grace."  Go deeper into the faith and understanding on The Mystical Rose PODCAST.  Host Maryann Ridini Spencer speaks with authors, religious leaders, and inspiring speakers about faith, hope, love, and living in God’s will.
