Did you know that Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day fall on the same day this year? I was wondering what possible connection the two days could have, so I went to Google.
Student Council members from Holy Cross H.S., Flushing, collaborated with Assemblyman Edward C. Braunstein’s office as well as the Law Offices of Ann-Margaret Carrozza to collect nearly $1,000 for veterans on St. Valentine’s Day.
My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, February is the month for those in love. The Feast of St. Valentine has become a day that focuses on cards, candy, flowers and even diamond rings. However, the history of St. Valentine’s Day is not founded on material tokens of affection, but rather on St. Valentine, an early martyr of the Church, who gave his life as a witness to the love of Jesus Christ.
