Valentine's Heart by Stephyz Valentine's Heart by Stephyz
A tribute to Valentine's Day. There were two stories from what I've heard about St. Valentine, One was that he was a priest who secretly married christian couples and otherwise aiding Christians who were at the time being persecuted by Claudius in Rome. Helping Christians at this time was considered a crime. Claudius took a liking to this prisoner -- until Valentinus tried to convert the Emperor -- whereupon this priest was condemned to death. He was beaten with clubs and stoned; when that didn't finish him, he was beheaded outside the Flaminian Gate.

The other was that St Valentine had fallen in love with a woman who was engaged to another man. When she rejected him, he sent her his still-beating heart before killing himself. Or something like that
:hmm:
Nevertheless, we all have St. Valentine to thank for giving us a day where we can enjoy with our love ones.

Still, I hope you had a fantastic February the 14th!
