What can I say that this photograph doesn’t already say by the bucket-load?! Hope you’ve all had a lovely, loved-up kinda day.
If not, then just think, it could be worse: you could have been martyred like good old St Valentine of Rome.
It amuses me a little just how far removed today’s celebrations on Valentine’s Day are from the stories of St Valentine himself. For example, St Valentine is sometimes represented by a picture of a “bishop with a crippled or epileptic child at his feet”.
Imagine getting a card from your loved one on 14 February: Nothing says “I love you” more than a greetings card featuring a bishop with a crippled or epileptic child.
Not that I’m mocking crippled or epileptic children. Or bishops for that matter. Or St Valentine. Or Valentine’s Day. Or Love … I’ll get my coat!
