Saint Valentine Day Is Coming

The Day of Saint Valentine Is Coming

For Lovers and Romantics - The Origins Of Saint Valentine Day :

We don't profess to be 'experts' in the life of Saint Valentine, or even 'Saint Valentine Day' though researching Saint Valentine Day will gather some fascinating information.  You'll have to keep in mind, that the passing of time can distort fact from fable.

Saint Valentine was a Roman Priest who lived during the time when a Roman emperor called Claudias, persecuted the Christian Church at that particular time in history.   Claudias created an edict that forbid young people from getting married. His hypothesis was based on his belief that unmarried soldiers fought better than married soldiers, the idea was that married soldiers might not be as brave, becoming more afraid of what might happen to their wives and families if they died.

Saint Valentine committed himself to clandestinely encouraging young lovers to marry within the Christian Church, and so he secretly married them despite Claudias' edict.

Eventually Valentine’s actions were discovered, and Claudius ordered that he be put to death. Valentine was arrested and dragged before the Prefect of Rome, who sentenced him to beaten to death with clubs, and to have his head cut off. The sentence was carried out on February 14, on or about the year 270.

While Valentine was awaiting his 'sentence' in jail, Saint Valentine left a farewell note for his jailer’s daughter, who had become his friend, signing it “From Your Valentine".

For his brave services to Christianity, Valentine was declared a Saint after his death, by the then Pope.
