One of the most famous Biblical references is in the
Sermon on the Mount, when Christ told his listeners:
"Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: 
they toil not, neither do they spin; and yet..... 
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

Often called the "white-robed apostles of hope," lilies were found 
growing in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ's agony. 
Tradition has it that the beautiful white lilies sprung up 
where drops of Christ's sweat fell to the ground 
in his final hours of sorrow and deep distress. 

Churches continue this tradition at Easter time
by banking their altars and surrounding their crosses
with masses of Easter Lilies, to commemorate the resurrection 
of Jesus Christ and hope of life everlasting.

A mark of purity and grace throughout the ages, the regal white lily
is a fitting symbol of the greater meaning of Easter. 
Gracing millions of homes and churches, the flowers embody joy,
hope and life. Whether given as a gift or enjoyed in your own home, 
the Easter Lily serves as a beautiful reminder that Easter
is a time for rejoicing and celebrating.
