Saint Valentine - San Valentín

Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, with their special “valentine," but  What is Valentine? It is a day to celebrate love and friendship.
Why is called Valentine? It comes from a Christian martyr from the 5th century and Roman Traditions.
Who is St. Valentine? The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine, all of whom were martyred.
About the Legend? 
Valentine was a Bishop in the third century in Rome. Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape from Roman prisons during Emperor Claudius. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today.

San Valentin

Cada año el 14 de febrero, muchas personas intercambian tarjetas, con su especial "San Valentín", pero  ¿Qué es San Valentín? Es un día para celebrar amor y amistad. ¿Acerca de la leyenda? San Valentín fue un obispo en el tercer siglo en Roma. San Valentín fue asesinado por intentar ayudar a los cristianos a huir de las prisiones durante el Tiempo Romano del emperador Claudius.  Antes de su muerte, se dice que escribió que una carta firmada "De tu Valentín," una expresión que hoy en día es usada. Aunque la verdad detrás de las leyendas de San Valentín no es clara, dedicamos este día para celebrar el AMOR 💗

💗 Celebraremos el Mes del AMOR
Con tarjetas, poemas, chocolates, o pequeños actos de amor. 💗
