St. Louis de Monfort's Roses in Heaven


The word “Rosary” means “Crown of Roses,” that is to say that every time people say the Rosary devoutly they place a crown of one hundred and fifty-three white roses and sixteen red roses upon the head of Jesus and Mary. Being heavenly flowers these roses will never fade or lose their exquisite beauty.” ~St. Louis De Montfort

Does this mean that these Roses will exist in Heaven FOREVER? If so, then I must be praying as frequently as possible as these are my Badge of Honor.


I have never heard this. I think they are not literal roses but honour to Jesus and Mary


I would say they do. I mean, if we believe in an eternal heaven, why would we not believe that such a great prayer could crown our saviour, Christ the King, and our Blessed Mother, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, with roses? We will not know how literal this is until death, but I’d imagine beautiful, heavenly roses, more wonderful than any on earth. And it’s a wonderful image.


Badge of Honor?
