A Bit of History (Of Valentine’s Day)

According to the Catholic Church, Saint Valentine is the patron saint of love, young people, and happy marriages. He was a priest imprisoned by the Romans for performing marriages even after the emporer outlawed them. Yet even in prison his ministry continued. Dozens of members of one guard’s families found salvation in Christ.

Valentine loved God and loved people so much that a world power could not stop him. That is real love worth celebrating.
