I was taught as a child, by my mother, that yes, the Passion

Flower was directly related to Christ. Each part of the flower

represents something: The three stigmas - the three nails used in

the crucifixion

The five anthers - Christ's five wounds

The corona - the crown of thorns

The five petals and sepals - stand for the ten faithful
