The Easter Lily

There are a lot of traditions all over the world that are related to Easter. One of the nice ones is with the
Easter Lily, a majestic and elegant flower that is referenced in the Bible in the Sermon on the Mount, when Christ said:

“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin and yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”

Lilies, often called the “White-Robed Apostles of Hope”, were discovered in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ died on the cross. During the Easter season, churches line their altars and envelop their crosses with a multitude of Easter Lilies, to signify the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the hope of eternal life.

Happy Easter
