There’s nothing very romantic about a man being beheaded because of his politically incorrect views. But February 14 marks the 1744th anniversary when tradition tells us that St. Valentine was executed in the Roman Empire for practicing his Christianity.
Consider this a love letter to a lady I saw only for a moment. Thirty years ago. She was passing on a trolley car, and I was on a bus headed in the opposite direction. It was in a city called Leningrad back then.
During the reign of Claudius II, a priest named Valentine was said to have been arrested and imprisoned for marrying Christians, who were at the time being persecuted in Rome. Other versions of the story say that Valentine was secretly marrying soldiers, because Claudius allegedly ordered young men to remain single, believing that married men did not make good soldiers.
