This week everyone will be thinking ahead to next Saturday, Valentine's Day. It can be an exciting day for some couples and for others it can be a lonely, sad day. How should this day be celebrated? For what was St. Valentine known?
I remember from my Catholic school days that Valentine sent love notes while he was in prison. He wanted people to know the love of God. It was not just for couples. His message was for all people.
Maybe this year we can follow St. Valentine's example and send some love messages to the lonely, the hurting and the needy along with those we love so much. Let's share God's love with the world.
