People who love each other express their love in different ways.
Who here has written a love letter? Do you remember what you said? Last year, I had the chance to visit Lisieux and see all the love letters Saint Therese of Lisieux wrote to Jesus. Many saints consider their most loving relationship to be with Jesus.
Today, as we celebrate Valentine’s Day, millions of people express their love for each other. Saint Valentine is known to be the patron saint of love, young people, and happy marriages. Whether it be letter writing, or another form of communication, tell the people in your life you love them today and spread this happiness in good faith!
How will you be expressing your love today? Who are you expressing it to?
Let our families be blessed and filled with love.
