Why do we celebrate Valentine's Day?

All that is dependably known of the holy person recognized on July 23 is his name and that he was martyred and covered at a burial ground on the Via Flaminia near the Milvian extension toward the north of Rome on that day. It is questionable whether St. Valentine is to be distinguished as one holy person or the conflation of two holy people of the same name. A few diverse martyrologies have been added to later hagiographies that are untrustworthy.

Since so little is known of him, in 1969 the Roman Catholic Church expelled his name from the General Roman Calendar, leaving his formal festival to nearby schedules. The Roman Catholic Church keeps on remembering him as a holy person, posting him all things considered in the February 14 section in the Roman Martyrology, and approving formal worship of him on February 14 in wherever where that day is not gave to some other required festival as per the principle that on such a day the Mass might be that of any holy person recorded in the Martyrology for that day. Utilization of the pre-1970 formal date-book is additionally approved under the conditions showed in the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum of 2007. Holy person Valentine's Church in Rome, assembled in 1960 for the necessities of the Olympic Village, proceeds as an advanced, all around went to ward church.

History of Valentine's Day

Saint Valentine's Day, is an official dining experience day in the Anglican Communion, and in addition in the Lutheran Church. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, Saint Valentine the Presbyter of Rome is praised on July 6 and Hieromartyr Valentine (Bishop of Interamna, Terni in Italy) is commended on July 30. In any case, in light of the relative lack of clarity of these two holy people in the East, individuals from the Greek Orthodox Church named Valentinos (male) or Valentina (female) might watch their name day on the Western clerical timetable date of February 14.
