St. Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2016;


Happy St. Valentine’s Day!

There are varying opinions as to the origin of Valentine’s Day. Some experts state that it originated from St. Valentine, a Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 A.D., the same day that had been devoted to love. Legend also says that St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer’s daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it “From Your Valentine”.
Other aspects of the story say that Saint Valentine served as a priest at the temple during the reign of Emperor Claudius. Claudius then had Valentine jailed for defying him. In 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius set aside February 14 to honour St. Valentine.
Gradually, February 14 became the date for exchanging love messages and St. Valentine became the patron saint of lovers. The date was marked by sending poems and simple gifts such as flowers.

Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes – World Day of Prayer for the Sick

February 11, 2016;

lourdesFebruary 11th is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and marks the first apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1858 to fourteen-year-old Marie Bernade (St. Bernadette) Soubirous. Between February 11 and July 16, 1858, the Blessed Virgin appeared eighteen times, and showed herself to St. Bernadette in the hollow of the rock at Lourdes. On March 25 she declared to Bernadette:

“I am the Immaculate Conception.”

Since then Lourdes has become a place of pilgrimage and many cures and conversions have taken place.

World Day of Prayer for the Sick

On 13th May 1992 Pope John Paul II instituted the World Day of the Sick to be held each year on the Feast of Our lady of Lourdes as “a special time of prayer and sharing.”

This celebration is a reminder to pray for all those who are sick and to recognize and honour…
