According to The Catholic Source by Rev. Peter Klien, St. Dorothea was a victim of the Dioletian persecution of the early fourth century. According to legend, she was scoffed at by Theophilus, the judge’s secretary, as she was being led to execution:
“Send me some roses and fruit when you when you get to paradise, Dorothea. ” Within moments of her execution an angel appeared to him, bearing a basket of apples and roses inscribed, “From Dorothea, in pardise.”
For me it is different, it means what the colors of the rose mean. It also means:
- “The Power of Heaven Shall be know through the Roses” St. Mary.
6:35pm on 5/7/2009 while walking from Star Bucks to the 711 Store, I was thinking about someone I know, Aquille from the Inglewood Library. His Angel’s use to communicate with me all the time. I found a yellow and pink rose with a representation of Olympia my sister on it.
I once introduced Aquille to Olympia. She plays professional Basketball.
