Teacup Thursday: Violets and Meanings


To Continue our "Violet" Flower theme... this week I'm going to share with you the violet's symbolism in Christianity. Violets are a symbol of modesty according to Women for Faith and Family. They are also associated with Mary. One tale tells that all violets were originally white, but after watching Mary's grief and despair over son suffering on the cross, the violets turned themselves purple as a symbol of her mourning.
