Hail, White Lily, of the ever-peaceful and glorious Trinity! Hail, Vermilion Rose, the delight of Heaven, of whom the King of Heaven was born and by whose milk He was nourished! Do thou feed our souls with the effusions of thy Divine influences.

During an apparition of the Blessed Mother, St. Gertrude noticed that the Holy Trinity was depicted under the form of a white lily with three petals. Our Lady made it known that that she would exert her influence with the Holy Trinity on behalf of those who saluted her as the White Lily of the Trinity and the Vermillion Rose of Heaven. She then added: “I will appear at the hour of death to those who salute me thus, in such glory that they will anticipate the very joys of Heaven.” [Revelations, Book III, chapter XVIII.]
