Ash Wednesday / Valentines day/ 1934 was the last time these two events fell on the same day !

***Who Was St. Valentine / 2-2018

Who was St. Valentine

Who was St. Valentine ?
One account from the 1400's describes Valentine
as a temple priest who was beheaded near Rome
by the emperor Claudius II, for helping
Christian couples wed.
A different account claims Valentine was
a bishop of Terni, also martyred by Claudius II
on the outskirts of Rome.  February 14, 269 A.D.

Exchanging "Valentines" or love notes
(often heart shaped) on Valentines Day
further spread throughout Anglo-Saxon
countries in the 19th century.
This process of commercialization
of the Holiday continued , especially
in the United States, during the 20th
century, adding additional traditions
like more elaborate love notes, with
added gifts like chocolates, flowers,
and jewelry.

So while the original St. Valentine
was likely tortured and beheaded
on Feb. 14th , his sacrifice for the
Christian faith has become the
Valentine's Day we have today !

May We turn our Nightlights on for
this beautiful holiday !

Here are some Video's about St. Valentine !

Because It's You / Help Guide Our Teens / Just Be There for them

Oh ! I am so tired
and I can hear your
little cry calling me
down the hall.

I feed  and give you
all of your needs.

because it's you

I am excited !
Now you can
finally crawl.
You are on
the move !

because it's you

I helped you make your
first steps.
You would wobble
and fall down .
I picked you up
again and again !

because it's you

Watching you sing
and dance brought
joy in our home .
Your laughter was
contagious , and
brought happiness
within.

because it's you 

Learning to ride
your bicycle and
enter in a sport
gave you confidence !
You allowed me
to be proud
and have joy !

because it's you 

Having sleepovers
with late night
giggles .
Listening to small
feet running back and
forth to the refrigerator
showed me friendship
fun !

because it's you

You discovered a
talent of singing !
I witnessed you
building your
courage within.
You would sing
your favorite song
over and over .
Your singing would
astonish others for
it sounded better
than the record !
Oh ! how I would
gleam !

because it's you

Now you are
becoming older and
you have your
drivers license !
You are a teen
on the go,
I love my wild child !

because it's you

You tell me you
are going out with
your friends .
You say good-bye
and you tell me
you love me.
I reply back in saying
"I love you too !"

because it's us

Oh ! how I hope you
discover the world
of wonders !
I hope you learn well
in your encounters.
I hope you simply
have fun in your
life !

because it's you

I think quitely
to myself and I pray\
Jesus protect my
child.

I see your dirty white
high top tennis shoes,
sitting on the rug,
next to the door.

Oh ! how I love those
dirty worn out shoes.

because it's you
