Embroider a Red Rose to Represent Christ's Passion

A Passion Rose on a Chrismon tree, has red petals
 with either gold, white or silver stems and petals.
       During the Middle Ages the rose was cultivated in monastery gardens and used for medicinal purposes. It became a symbol in religious writing and iconography in different images and settings, to invoke a variety of intellectual and emotional responses. The mystic rose appears in Dante's Divine Comedy, where it represents God's love. By the twelfth century, the red rose had come to represent Christ's passion, and the blood of the martyrs.

Scripture Reference for A Red Rose Symbol:
  • "While I was with them, I kept them in thy name which thou hast given me: and I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled." John 17:12 (ASV)
  • "And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe." Matthew 27:28 (KJV)
  • "Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession." Psalms 2:8 (ESV)
