Don’t you love Valentine’s Day?

valentines dayIn the 1969 revision of the Roman Catholic Calendar of Saints, the feast day of Saint Valentine on February 14 was removed from the General Roman Calendar and relegated to local (and some national) calendars. “Though the memorial of Saint Valentine is ancient, it is left to particular calendars, since, apart from his name, nothing is known of Saint Valentine except that he was buried on the Via Flaminia on February 14.”

In fact, numerous early Christian martyrs were named Valentine. No romantic elements are present in the original early medieval biographies of any of them. Saint Valentine became linked to romance in the 14th century.
