I went to google 'roses' and found a little more info-- red rose can mean the blood of Jesus or the martyrs...a white rose means purity...a pink rose means sorrow or condolences/comfort
Jesus is also described as the 'Rose of sharon' Sharon is a metaphor of Israel and he is the beauty of it
here is my favorite- a single rose means perpetual love
the fragrance of roses elicits feeling of love but also sorrow
the dolor or sorrow of Christ is portrayed by red rose
