Valentine’s Day has a long history, form the middle ages until the modern era. Sometimes it seems like it is mainly celebrated by greeting cards makers and chocolatiers. However, the truth is that Valentine’s Day has a deeper meaning.
There were three saints named Valentine. One of them, a priest from Rome, had spread light in the darkest times. He used to secretly perform christian weddings during the time of Claudius the second. The emperor asked Valentine to give up Christianity and to practice Roman Paganism instead. Valentine refused and was executed. After his death, Valentine became the patron of lovers.
These days, most of the world’s citizens are free to practice all religions. However, in the spirit of saint Valentine, it is very important to stand behind your choice, and to spread love even through difficult and challenging times.
Valentine’s day is celebrated in many different countries around the world on February 14th. The deep meaning of the story behind it raises questions about the way Valentine’s day is celebrated.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…”
(1 cornithians 13:4-8).
