Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day

Friendly reminder that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. If you have – God forbid — forgotten to get a sweet treat for your sweet treat, you still have time. Don’t get caught on thin ice. Scurry off and get snacks or diamonds – like, right now! Meanwhile, enjoy one of my fave depictions of St. Valentine by Italian artist Paolo Consorti. Ironically, this memorably imaginary portrayal of the patron saint of love smelling roses on ice skates was discovered in a small sanctuary by my friend Sister Rose Pacatte while she was participating in a film festival in Italy. The (contested relics) of St. Valentine are actually at the Basilica and the Carmelite Monastery Church in Terni, an hour north of Rome. Spread the love.
