VD: is it for everybody, or just for a few?
I spent many a curious hour yesterday reading everyone's Valentine's Day posts, and I mean everybody's because January One (click on the left there) had a little contest about VD stories.
So did Stephanie McPhee (and you know where to click for that), on that resonated a little more to me.
If you remember your haigiography, you know there were two St. Valentines. Both were beheaded by emperors after curing people of gruesome and disfiguring diseases, apparently by laying hands on them, and refusing to pledge allegiance to the pagan gods of those in power. So this is a reminder: it's not about the little angels with the arrows and diamonds in a box, it's about love.
