COUPLE IN LOVE

In preparation of St. Valentine's Day, here are some thoughts to consider about the true value of spousal love.

Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, and for all its association with romantic love it actually marks the feast day of the 3rd-century bishop and martyr, Valentine. Legend has it that Valentine secretly witnessed marriages so that husbands could avoid being sent off to war. He would then give the new spouse a paper heart to remind him of his marriage vows and God’s love. So Valentine’s Day is very much a celebration of married love.

With this in mind, we thought we’d share some quotes that celebrate the beauty of marriage, and the unique love a couple has for each other. These quotes from saints, literary giants, and scripture all share the resounding message that while marriage takes work and devotion, the love between a couple can grow over time and bring them closer to God.
