A young priest named Valentine held the firm conviction that marriage should not be denied by the state. He began to secretly and illegally perform marriage ceremonies. More and more Roman soldiers sought him out.
What if we could celebrate Valentine's Day in a whole different way? What if, instead of celebrating whether or not we have someone to take us out to dinner, we celebrated all the love we have ever felt in our lives?
I feel like we had our Valentine's Day on Wednesday, February 2nd. That was the day the heavens poured snow and sleet and ice over Boston and the town we live in and the workplaces we contribute to called it a Snow Day.
If we take the joy of Valentine's Day, enjoy the romance of it but also spread the affection and love it breeds far and wide through our daily actions, on this day, but also every other one of the year.
The object of everyone's affection was standing onstage, a vision of loveliness in a slinky, black mini-dress with ruffles on the shoulders, matching leggings and soft, dark curls framing a face of innocence.
Whether you are with your loved one this Valentine's Day, or on your own, you can be celebrating Divine Love. What is Divine Love? How it any different from regular old love? And how can you celebrate it?
