What an adoring temple of God’s love you are!
All of us are called to be beacons of love for one another!
St. Valentine was a skilled physician, a gifted healer of the body. His courage for embracing his enemies elevated him to be an extraordinary healer of the soul. Whilst imprisoned under Emperor Claudius II, the Cruel, the story reads that he restored the eyesight of his jailer’s daughter. Touched by his grace, the jailer witnessed, firsthand, the merciful love of Christianity, and finally understood Valentine’s zeal for his faith. The revelation continues, as it is rumored, that on the morning of his martyrdom, he wrote a letter to the girl he healed with the closing signature, “from your Valentine.”
Love may be a single word; however, it carries the divergent measure of many distinctive translations and interpretations. You are not alone in your quest to be the embodiment of virtue for others. Each of us receives the greatest adoration of all - the love of Christ!
LOVE of God, family, neighbor, community, and friendship are just a few examples of how love manifests itself through YOU!
YOUR love transforms the world into a beautiful heaven!
Today, and every day, you are loved!
From Your Valentine,
