Our Lady’s gown features nine distinct flower clusters. This number is significant in Christian tradition in its connection with:
- The Three Persons of the Holy Trinity:
- Father, Son, & Holy Spirit
- The Nine Choirs of Angels:
- Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones Dominations, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels, and Angels.
- The nine days the Disciples stayed in the upper Room and prayed after Christ’s Ascension until Pentecost Sunday.
