Happy St. Valentine's Day!

There are a number of legends about St. Valentine.  My favorite is that while he was in prison for believing in Jesus little children would pass notes through the window of his cell telling him that they loved him.  The notes began "Dear Valentine."  When he answered them he signed, "Your Valentine!"
St. Valentine was a priest in Rome and a physician.  He was beheaded there because of his Christian faith on February 14, 269.
