In this classic story of romance, Prince Florimund awakened Aurora to life by offering to take the curse of sleep upon himself in her place. Because of the great love and sacrifice he showed towards Aurora, the curse was broken and Prince Florimund was no longer bound in slumber. In every story where unconditional love conquers evil, the original romance between Christ and His creation can be seen. Because of His great love for us, Christ offered to take the curse of death upon Himself in our place. In so doing, He awakened our hearts to life.
