“Symbol of peace, commitment and beauty, but also of power and pride.” – Symbolism
It is said that the hyacinth came around 1560 from Turkey, Syria and Lebanon to Europe, but it was a couple of centuries before everyone could enjoy them. There were so exclusive that only a couple of rich plant lovers had them in their greenhouses.
Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace, who are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, “Peace to you,” grant us peace. Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love. Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace. Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace. May all peoples on the earth become as brothers and sisters. May longed for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.
