St. Valentine


Bit of HistoryValentine was a holy priest in Rome, who, with St. Marius and his family, assisted the martyrs in the persecution under Claudius II. He was apprehended, and sent by the emperor to the prefect of Rome, who, on finding all his promises to make him renounce his faith in effectual, commended him to be beaten with clubs, and afterwards, to be beheaded, which was executed on February 14, about the year 270. Archaeologists unearthed a Roman catacomb and an ancient church dedicated to Saint Valentine. In 496 AD Pope Gelasius marked February 14th as a celebration in honor of his martyrdom.

    1. Thanks Annie, It was so fun to get back into cutting, crafting and creating! I think I might have to get on those other million and one projects I’ve been putting off for so long. I had forgotten how much I enjoy working on a variety of projects.
