About Valentine Day?
St. Valentine’s Day is a day set aside for people to express the depth of their love to a loved one.
In memory of Saint Valentine of Rome who was imprisoned and tortured for performing marriage ceremonies against the command of Emperor Claudius the second, Valentine’s day was set up just for people to reanimate the strengths and vibes in their relationship.
St Valentine’s aim was to bring Agape love into existence even in the lives of couples.
However, Saint valentines aim for this has been defeated nowadays, because people(lovers especially) give different meaning and tag to it.
Just before he gave up the ghost after he was stoned and tortured to death, his last words were to the daughter of Asterius which read “From your Valentine” this inspired the February 14th Valentine’s Day celebration of love.
Every 14th February is set aside for lovers(single or married) to look back on old memories, create new ones and to reaffirm their love for each other.
Such a beautiful moment.
