Love

VICAR

Dear Readers, good day. Tuesday was of course St Valentine’s Day. Few bother to notice but Valentine’s Day has a bloody origin:

From February 13th to February 15th, the Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia. Emperor Claudius II executed two men — both named Valentine — on February 14th of different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honoured by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day.

Of course these days it’s merely another commercial feast when the pressure is on men and florists in particular to come up with the necessary. It’s also a time for mothers to write their sons and daughters a card signed with a question mark  in case they feel at all lonely.

Love is the most important of all.

Aside from the commercialisation, I want to leave St Valentine’s with the last thought this year. With Ten Ways to Love:
