Love is in the air – or is it? For countless men and women in relationships, Valentine’s Day is one of the most important days of the year. Flowers, Chocolates and Romantic Gift Cards are the order of the day. On average, Americans spend 14 Billion dollars annually on Valentine’s Day making it one of the top grossing of all so-called holidays. But hidden beneath the fragrance of roses – the sweetness of chocolate and cleverly crafted words on greeting cards is an ancient pagan evil that has survived till this day. Like so many customs of this age, Valentine’s Day shares the same pagan origins of Christmas, Easter and many others. In a world where Fornication is called a Relationship, Lust is called love and Lewdness is called Romance, it is easy to understand why this day is so prominent in our society. But those who understand the true Biblical meaning of Love will be able to break through the veil of lies and establish true relationships based on the teachings of Jesus Christ! Join us today for another installment of “From Darkness to Light” as we expose the Tainted Love that is Valentine’s Day.

In 1496, Pope Gelasius changed the Lupercalia festival of February 15 to Saint Valentine's Day February 14. But the sentimental meaning of the old festival has remained to the present time. Historians disagree about the identity of St. Valentine".
The roots of St. Valentine's Day lie in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, which was celebrated on Feb. 15. For 800 years the Romans had dedicated this day to the god Lupercus. On Lupercalia, a young man would draw the name of a young woman in a lottery and would then keep the woman as a sexual companion for the year (The Origins of St. Valentine's Day. http://www.americancatholic.org/Features/ValentinesDay/, January 31, 2004).

*** Happy St. Valentine's Day ***

St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition.
While some believe that Valentine's Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine's death or burial — which probably occurred around 270 A.D — others claim that the Christian church may have decided to celebrate Valentine's feast day in the middle of February in an effort to "christianize" celebrations of the pagan Lupercalia festival. In ancient Rome, February was the official beginning of spring and was considered a time for purification. Houses were ritually cleansed by sweeping them out and then sprinkling salt and a type of wheat called spelt throughout their interiors. Lupercalia, which began at the ides of February, February 15, was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.####
