We have an extraordinary example in Saint Valentine. As a 3rd century priest in Rome, Saint Valentine and his fellow Catholics lived in danger under the rule of Claudius II, who persecuted Christians. Saint Valentine visited prisoners, spreading the Word of God to them. He himself was imprisoned and martyred for his faith, for his love of God and the Church.
The Marians invite you to use this time to avail yourself of the graces that the Lord has prepared for you with this Novena.
You may send your special intentions to be remembered in our St. Valentine Novena of Masses. You also may pray along with the same prayer offered by the Marians at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy.
