St Valentine... Martyred for sacramental love 270 AD

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

Sacramental marriage
was under siege

in 270 AD

Valentine's head
was severed from 
his broken heart

Was it all a legend?
Now in 2016
marriage is again

in the crosshairs.

And yet Valentine's Day survives   

$$$ is the reason

A gifted Anglican brother in Christ
Malcolm Guite
offers a sonnet that stirred me 
to pray for St. Valentine's
intercession in my marriage.    


Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
Mike Rizzio

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!

* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael
