“Here are three roses – the rose, of course, is the symbol of love! For us this morning – these three roses reflect the way God loves us in Dalton Jacques – the way Dalton demonstrated the Father’s love for us – the way Dalton shared in Jesus’ love for us – the way Dalton witnessed to the power of the gifts of the Holy Spirit for us. One rose for Dalton working with the Father – one rose for Dalton working with Jesus – one rose for Dalton reminding us of the ways the Holy Spirit journeys with each one of us. – Rev James Mulligan, St. Kevin Church.
