Oil Dedicated to St Dorothy 2 (Patron for Florists)
St. Dorothy, beacon of compassion and kindness, we turn to you in our moments of need. Just as you bore witness to the boundless love of Christ, we seek your guidance in cultivating empathy and warmth in our own hearts. Like the flowers that miraculously bloomed in your presence, may the seeds of generosity and selflessness sprout within us. St. Dorothy, intercede for us in times of difficulty, that we may face challenges with the same unwavering faith that you displayed. May your example inspire us to extend a helping hand to those around us, fostering a world filled with the fragrance of love and understanding. Amen.
1 John 4:16
“So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and anyone who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in them.”
The St Dorothy 2 is dedicated to the 4th century virgin and martyr.
This oil is dedicated to Saint Dorothy who a 4th-century virgin martyr who was executed at Caesarea Mazaca. She called a martyr of the Diocletianic Persecution
Apochryphal martyr whose story has beautifully told, and was popular for many years. Having made a personal vow of virginity, she refused to marry, or to sacrifice to idols. She tried, tortured, and sentenced to death for her faith by the prefect Sapricius. The pagan lawyer Theophilus said to her in mockery, “Bride of Christ, send me some fruits from your bridegroom’s garden.” Before she executed, she sent him, by a six-year-old boy who thought to have an angel, her headress which had the fragrance of roses and fruits. Seeing this gift, and the miraculous messenger who brought them, Theophilus converted, and martyred himself. This story has variously enlarged through the years. In some places, trees blessed on her feast day because of her connection with a blooming, fruitful miracle.
