Valentine's Day

Long time ago when Saint Valentine of Rome  was a priest in Rome, He was also a martyred in 269 and was added to the calendar of saints by Pope Galesius in 496 and was buried on the Via Flaminia.

The remains of Saint Valentine were kept in the Church and Catacombs of San Valentino in Rome. It was an important pilgrim site throughout the Middle Ages until the remains  of St. Valentine were transferred to the church of Santa Prassede during the pontificate of Nicholas.

 The flower-crowned skull of Saint Valentine is exhibited in the Basilica of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, Rome. Other relics are found at Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church in Dublin, Ireland.

Valentine of Terni became bishop of Interamna and is said to have been martyred during the persecution under Emperor Aurelian in 273.

He is buried on the Via Flaminia, but in a different location from Valentine of Rome. His relics are at the Basilica of Saint Valentine in Terni (Basilica di San Valentino). Jack B. Oruch states that "abstracts of the acts of the two saints were in nearly every church and monastery of Europe.
