Quote of the Day

Saints are not supposed to rest in peace; they're expected to keep busy: to perform miracles, to intercede.
Being in jail or dead is no excuse for non-performance of the supernatural.

--from a biography of St. Valentine, priest and martyr.

The Roman Martyrology states that, after having cured and instructed many persons, Valentine was beaten with clubs and beheaded this day, February 14, at Rome, on the Flaminian Way, in the time of Emperor Claudius II.
