Saint Valentine’s Day is a day for showing one’s love for others. And the word saint further implies that it may be a holy day.

Indeed it should be, because God is the author of love and his love endures forever and he is most holy. He created mankind with love and expects us to love one another and through his son Jesus would have us to be holy, too.

They say love makes the world go around. It’s good to remember he created that, too.

Say a loving prayer to God today — no card or stamp required. Ask God to make you a more loving person and he will surely answer your prayer. Share your love with another person by telling them you’ll pray for them (or their troubled love one), and your love on Valentine’s Day will take on a very special meaning.
