Rose of Sharon

The passage in the Song of Solomon which reads the "Rose of Sharon" is applied to Christ, symbolizing especially that through him "life and immortality were brought to light." Thus we have explained the origin of the Rose Croix as the name of the Degree which centers in and around Christ. The rose as a symbol of Christ and the cross as an emblem of his death untied on the Jewel of the Rose Croix point to the truth that through Christ the secret of immortality is revealed and through his death an immortal life of purity and happiness is made available. The "Rose of Sharon"… — ( Songs 2:1 )
