And Remember, Today Is About Love

Not the feeling that you have to go buy flowers or chocolates.

It's the love that moves a person to shed their blood for the Love of God. Remember why we have a Valentine's Day. It's because he would rather be beheaded than to reject the duties of Faith. I couldn't find a picture of St. Valentine's martyrdom, but here's Caravaggio's rendering of the death of St. Peter for your consideration.

It's a picture of love, just not the kind we're used to hearing about today.
