The legend of the Christmas Rose is about a poor young girl named Madelon who wanted to worship the Christ Child. Seeing the gold, frankincense and myrrh brought by others, she despaired that she had no gift to bring.
She searched the countryside for a flower that she might bring, but the winter had been cold and harsh. There were no flowers to be found. Madelon began to weep. An angel passing over her stopped to provide comfort and struck the ground that was wet from her tears causing a beautiful bush that bloomed of white roses to spring up.
"Nor myrrh, nor frankincense, nor gold," said the angel, "is offering more for the Christ Child than these pure Christmas Roses." And so young Madelon went her way and worshiped the Prince of Peace, bearing the gift of her heart and her tears.
