The Lily of the Valley is more than just a Springtime flower that is associated with weddings and Easter.

With its beautiful fragrance, and white, delicate flowers, the Lily of the Valley, the birth flower for the month of May, which is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, also symbolises purity, sweetness, humility, virtue, femininity, motherhood, beauty and the return of happiness

The Lily of the Valley is also known as Our Lady’s Tears because, according to legend, at the crucifixion of Jesus, the Virgin Mary’s tears fell at the foot of the cross and turned into these tiny fragrant blossoms.

In fact, the Lily of the Valley goes by many names, including May Bells, Lily Constancy, May Lily, Mary’s Tears and Our Lady’s Tears.

Brides carry the lily of the valley in their bridal bouquets and newly married couples plant it in their gardens to invite our Lady to bless them with happiness, love and joy in their homes.

It is no wonder then that it is the fourth most popular flower n the world.

This springtime perennial is native to England, North America and Asia, and would thrive in low-light locations.

We can honour Our Lady and also learn a lot of about Marian virtues, Biblical womanhood, motherhood and traditional Catholic femininity from the Lily of the Valley, and I strongly encourage every traditional Catholic woman or home to have the lily of the valley in their garden or patio space.

Don’t have a garden or patio area? You can still grow this plant in pots in your home, living space or dorm.

All you need is a plant pot and a nearby window or light source.

This is just one of the many little ways we can make our homes a bit more Catholic and invite the special graces of God and of Our Lady into our families, our homes and our lives.

Purchase the lily of the valley at your nearest garden store or HERE

Our Lady, model of virtue, giver of happiness, pray for us!
