 Our Description

 

This laminated St. Valentine holy card features an image of the saint on the front. The reverse features the Prayer to St. Valentine and an excerpt from St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians "On Love" which reads:

 

St. Valentine

Feast Day: February 14

Dear Glorious martyr and Saint, teach

us to love unselfishly and to find great

joy in giving. Enable all true lovers to

bring out the best in each other. As

they love each other, may they grow

in love of  God. Amen

Love

Love is patient and kind.

It doesn't envy or boast, and it's

never proud.

Love is not rude or selfish.

It doesn't get angry esily, or keep

track of wrongs.

Love doesn't delight in bad thing,

but rejoices in the truth.

Love always protects, trusts, hope

and perseveres

Love never fails..

St. Valentine of Rome

Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 02/14


Patron Of: Love

    14 February
Profile
    Priest in Rome, possibly a bishop. Physician. Imprisoned for giving aid to martyrs in prison, and while there converted the jailer by restoring sight to the jailer's daughter. While Valentine of Terni and Valentine of Rome sometimes have separate entries in martyrologies and biographies, most scholars believe they are the same person.

    There are several theories about the origin of Valentine's Day celebrations. Some believe the Romans had a mid-February custom where boys drew girls' names in honor of the sex and fertility goddess, Februata Juno; pastors "baptised" this holiday, like some others, by substituting the names of saints such as Valentine to suppress the practice. Others maintain that the custom of sending Valentines on 14 February stems from the belief that birds begin to pair on that date. By 1477 the English associated lovers with the feast of Valentine because on that day "every bird chooses him a mate." The custom started of men and women writing love letters to their Valentine on this day. Other "romance" traditions have become attached to this feast, including pinning bay leaves to your pillow on Valentine's Eve so that you will see your future mate that night in your dreams.
