It’s Valentine’s Day! <3!
St Valentine, for whom this feast day was attributed, was an early martyr of the Catholic Church.
Truly isn’t love a kind of martyrdom? In fact, is it really love if you are not asked to sacrifice the unthinkable? “Oh, this, I will never do, even for love…!” What have you done for love? What are you willing to do? You can even think of it this way, though it will make some of you squirm: “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13)
When you’re buying the roses and the champagne and the candy and the condoms after work tonight, think about what love rally means. Maybe write your Valentines card after you ponder it a bit.
