Camellias Bloom by Church Wall
In floral language, the Camellia Japonica is considered a symbol of purity.
I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that everywhere, wherever you may be, the least plant may bring to you the clear remembrance of the Creator. If you see the grass of the fields, think of human nature, and remember the comparison of the wise Isaiah. “All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field.” ~ St. Basil the Great
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. ~ Isaiah 40:8
Be still, and know that I am God… ~ Psalm 46:10
Silence is the mystery of the age to come. ~ St Isaac of Syria
May your Lenten Journey be quiet, peaceful, and fruitful.
