This Saint Valentine’s Day exchange card depicts the patron saint of love with hearts and roses.
For the past few Valentine’s day, we gave heart chocolate boxes to our kids. However, my son has a number of food allergies and finding an allergy-free box has become more challenging. So this year, I decided to make a goody bag for my kids instead.
I thought it would be nice to include a Valentine’s day card and figured it would be a good opportunity to remind them of the patron saint (or saints, since there appears to be two or three different St. Valentines) behind the special day.
The Patron Saint of Love
Several different stories and legends exists about Saint Valentine. Some of them are that:
- He was a priest or bishop
- He was jailed for trying to convert people to Christianity
- He restored sight to the jailer’s blind daughter
- He secretly married couples to prevent husbands from being sent to war
- He was beheaded by the Roman Emperor Claudius II sometime around the year 270
Some believe that the church instituted the feast day of Saint Valentine to replace the pagan fertility holiday called Lupercalia.
In addition to being the patron saint of love, Saint Valentine is also the saint of engaged couples, beekeepers, epilepsy, happy marriages, and young people.
