Valentine's Day

Today is also the Feast Day of St. Valentine, a Priest, martyred in 269 at Rome and was buried on the Flaminian Way. He is the Patron Saint of affianced couples, bee keepers, engaged couples, epilepsy, fainting, greetings, happy marriages, love, lovers, plague, travelers, young people. He is represented in pictures with birds and roses.

Blessings to you on this Valentine's Day.
May you love and know that you are loved.

    This is a lovely site. It brings us to the spiritual side of ourselves.
