St. Valentine’s Day is upon us.

In history, there are several martyred Christians named Valentine. Valentine of Rome was martyred in 269. His crowned skull is exhibited in the Basilica of Santa Maria in Cosmedin and other relics are found at Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church in Dublin. Valentine of Ternia, martyred in 273, has his relics at the Basilica of Saint Valentine in Terni. Both were buried in Via Flaminia.

The most popular legend states that Saint Valentine performed Christian marriages for the Roman troops. Emperor Claudius II, believing single men made better soldiers, did not allow them to marry. Saint Valentine would wear a ring with Cupid, the God of Love, engraved in the amethyst stone.

St. Valentine’s Day has become a popular celebration for couples. Enjoy your St. Valentine’s Day with your special someone.
