Saint's Day

Of all the saints on the roster, who decided that Saint Valentine of Rome was the saint we had to memorialize every year?

St. Valentine is the patron saint of:

  • affianced couples
  • betrothed couples
  • engaged couples
  • happy marriages
  • love

Perhaps it is no coincidence that he is also the patron saint of greeting card makers.


But there are plenty of other saints on call if a holiday is needed. For those who go a bit overboard for St. Valentine's Day, mark your calendars: August 30 is St. Fiacre's Day. He's the patron saint of... well, look it up.
