In Honor of the Upcoming Feast Day
Below is an account of the original St. Valantine. Usually, I help to put on a Valentine's dinner at our Church and we read this as a meditation. I realized this year that all I could remember about the saint was that he was a martyr and that he wrote letters from prison and signed them "From your Valentine." It is a good thing that the feast comes around again every year- maybe in a few decades I will be able to remember more of each saint's life.
