Happy Saint Valentine's Day

From I learned the following interesting tidbit about Saint Valentine.

St. Valentine was a Priest, martyred in 269 at Rome and was buried on the Flaminian Way. He is the Patron Saint of affianced couples, bee keepers, engaged couples, epilepsy, fainting, greetings, happy marriages, love, lovers, plague, travellers, young people. He is represented in pictures with birds and roses.  

Read more about Saint Valentine here on

Bee keepers? Plague? Fainting?  The rest I kind of understand.

Happy Saint Valentine's Day to everyone!!
