One Response to “Valentines Day?”

  1. I do agree with you. The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

    Some version said that this Valentine day is a Pagan Festival in February, to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death or burial–which probably occurred around A.D. 270
