Rebroadcast of the long-running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour," a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org

St. Valentine is a third-century Roman saint. Few facts about his life are known, but one of the legends attributed to him involves a miraculous healing. Valentine was a priest arrested for trying to convert people to Christianity, a crime punishable by death. While under house arrest in the home of a local judge, Valentine was introduced to the judge’s blind daughter. Valentine prayed to God to restore the girl’s sight, if it be His will. The girl’s vision was restored.

St. Valentine was martyred on February 14, 269 AD.
