Happy Valentine's Day
What a wonderful way to celebrate a man's life. But who was St. Valentine. Know one really knows. He was a Roman priest who was martyred. That is about it. When looking him up on the Internet, I was looking forward to finding out about this Saint. But unlike my favorite saint, little is known about Valentine. Who is my favorite saint? St. Francis. I love him. He was so human, with such a human background. If he was alive today, doctors would put him on medication because he would be seen as a nut case. I find him wonderful. If ever I want to be inspired, I read about St. Francis. I also read about someone I hope will become a saint in my lifetime. Mother Teresa. Both these people gave up everything to follow God. They both served and dared to be seen as eccentric. I pray one day to have even a moment of their bravery. So Happy Valentine's day, what ever that really means, but wouldn't it be wonderful to have a huge holiday to honor Francis and Teresa. Maybe someday.
