St Valentine - a belated note

St Valentine never got a mention here yesterday.  (And, yes, it is still his feast day on the calendar of the traditional Roman Rite.)  I was on the QM all weekend with the local branches of the RSCDS demonstrating what we do and hoping to attract some interested folks.  Mentioning St Valentine, along with my annual whinge about why our most reverend fathers-in-God chose to eliminate from the Pauline calendar one of the very few saints which the secular world still recognizes, got neglected.  It was, alas, not the only thing neglected over the weekend.  But to the point.

Mrs Vidal was not so neglectful.  A nice piece about St Valentine can be found here.
