St. Valentine's Day


Happy St. Valentine's Day!
Or, in the words of my two-year-old, "Happy T-Tine Day!"

This is a stained glass etching of St. Valentine of Rome, by an unknown artist.

Above is a painting from EWTN's listing for St. Valentine. There were three different sainted martyrs named Valentine, all of them honored on February 14. The day became associated with romance by the English and French in the middle ages.

I LOVE that painting it really captures the Catholic meaning of marriage and romance!
