Mary's Gold


Here's the Queen of Heaven and Earth, resting in the center of a Marigold. Did you know Marigold's get their name from the Virgin Mary? "Mary's Gold." Yep!

"No matter what its variety, the marigold is rich in symbolism of Our Lady. The gold petals are likened to rays of light crowning her head, and the prodigal color is related to the generous giving of herself to God's plan.

Sometimes described as 'the flower of grief', the marigold actually weeps on occasion. Droplets gather in the flower during the night and drip off like tears when it opens in the morning. This characteristic moved Shakespeare to write in A Winter's Tale:

"The Marygold that goes to bed with the sun, / And with him rises weeping."

Grief mixed with joy, poverty linked with abundance of good gifts--that is the marigold's reflection of the lady for whom she is named. If peoples and nations could achieve the spirit of Our Lady whom this flower commemorates, all life would take on new meaning and purpose." - All About Mary/University of Dayton
