This was Jack’s favorite Holiday for the expression of Divine Love Realized.
St. Valentine was a young priest who lived in Rome in the third century after the time of Jesus. Like many early Christians, Valentine was imprisoned for his faith and then martyred. His name was revered, and his Feast Day lovingly Kept on the anniversary of his death, February 14th.
At a much later time, the custom arose of sending written greetings to express affection for a loved one as the harsh days of winter began to give way to early spring. The Feast of St.Valentine became identified with this custom and with the love we share with each other and with God who is all loving.
