No Nobility Greater Than That of Our Lord and Our Lady

There is a beautiful legend about Moss, which says, that its original color was grey; and when the dead Body of Jesus had been taken from the Cross and placed on Mary’s lap, the last drops of His precious Blood trickled from His sacred Wounds on the moss beneath the feet of the Sorrowful Mother, and it at once became green, as a symbol of the all-quickening power of the Precious Blood of Christ.⸺Since Our Lord died for us upon the Cross, love for our neighbor is green, that is, it gives hope of eternal recompense.
