Symbolism of the flowers:
Saint Therese of Lisieux was a French Carmelite nun who absolutely LOVED flowers. She wrote about them often in her autobiography while speaking of fond memories or making spiritual analogies. 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 tea towel features the exact flowers she describes here in addition to two of her other favorite flowers: poppies and purple vetch.
Let this tea towel 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.
“Remplissez-le à Nouveau de Fleurs” // “fill it anew with flowers”
