St Juan Roses

An imprinted image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was found with out-of-season roses, in the cloak (or tilma) of Juan Diego.  The Blessed Virgin Mary had appeared to Juan and encouraged him to convince the authorities to build the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, now a popular pilgrimage site.

How about making some special roses (like the ones that spilled out of St Juan’s tilma) to decorate the dinner table for a Mexican feast?
