Saint Valentine may have been one person or many, depending on local custom.  Notwithstanding the fact that Valentinus was a popular name ascribed to many different people of both genders, it remains a fact that Valentinus/Valentine was a person worthy of note.

As each of us remember our own Valentine  this day - we proclaim to all around us that this person - this special Valentine - is a person of note.  They may be our spouse or child or other person whom we chose to recognize on this day commonly celebrated as a day of love.  Today -out of all days in the calendar year - we profess our love for these special Valentines.

Would that we should celebrate love and special people everyday of our lives - then we would truly be Christ like!
