One was given to me when I made a pilgrimmage from Atlanta to Lafayette, LA in December 1999 to see the Major Relics of the Little Flower.
I had two sisters from Nigeria (Sister Angelia and Sister Catherine) with me. They stayed in New Orleans for a couple of days as I visited my parents. Then I brought them to Lafayette where the Little Flower was to visit the Carmelite convent there. It was there that I brought her a rose that day (or maybe many roses).
At the end of the day, the nuns had so many roses, they did not know what to do with them. So a local woman had gotten several of the roses for the nuns I had brought from Atlanta as well as a couple of nuns in Carencro... This woman also gave me a rose.
The other occasion was around the beatification of the children of Fatima. The head of the Rosary group game me a rose on that day, but before I left for she her, I had taken a chaplet booklet to the Little Flower and put it in my pocket. I knew I did not have time to pray it, but I did not know why I put it in my pocket.
On the back of the novena booklet, there was a picture of the Little Flower dropping roses from heaven to the people on earth below...
