Symbolism of the flower and quote:
The flowers embroidered on this apron were inspired by an excerpt from Saint Therese of Lisieux’s autobiography. She wrote the following excerpt while describing her preparation to receive First Holy Communion:
“I must stir up in my heart fresh transports of love and fill it anew with flowers. So each day I made a number of sacrifices and acts of love that were to be changed into so many flowers; now violets, another time roses, then cornflowers, daisies, or forget-me-nots — in a word, all nature’s blossoms were to form in me a cradle for the Holy Child.”
This apron features the exact flowers she describes here in addition to two of her other favorite flowers: poppies and purple vetch.
The tails of the apron feature an embroidered quote that reads “Remplissez-le à Nouveau de Fleurs” which translates to “fill it anew with flowers” in french.
Let this apron remind you to fill your heart with love for Jesus in the small and hidden sacrifices of your daily life. Whether you’re making your husband lunch, wiping snot from a tiny nose, making a grandiose feast for your friends, or simply washing that one pot left in the kitchen sink, Jesus sees it all.
When we offer these acts of love for him, as Saint Therese of Lisieux reminds us, it’s as if we are creating the most beautiful bouquet of flowers for Him.
