Golden Rose

Golden Rose, a rose set in precious stones, consecrated by the pope, and sent to crowned heads and others whom the pope delights to honor. This rose was first sent in 1366 by Urban V to Joan, queen of Sicily. The pope consecrates one every year on the 4th Sunday in Lent. The golden rose was sent to the queen of Spain just before her downfall in 1868.
