Valentine Patron of Lovers

In addition to the historical facts we have about St. Valentine, his life is accompanied by various legends, such as the one who wants him as the protector of lovers…
The saint who had the reputation of a peacemaker, one day while growing roses in his garden, heard a couple arguing very loudly. This shocked the saint, who after cutting a rose, went out into the street, approached the couple and asked them to listen to him. They even obediently obeyed, the saint after offering them the rose blessed them. Immediately love returned between them, a little later they returned and asked the saint to bless their marriage. Another tradition states that one of the accusations against the saint was that he had disobeyed the emperor's order not to marry men who had not fulfilled their military obligations, while the saint had blessed the marriage of young Christian soldiers with their loved ones.
Apart from all this, his choice as a "saint of lovers" is probably related to the pagan feast of Lupercalia, a feast of fertility, which was celebrated by the Romans on February 15; others associate the feast with the season of the mating of birds during this period. What is certain, however, is that the saint has nothing to do with the trade (marketing) of flowers, gifts and secular centers that humiliate Eros, this great gift of God.
