There are a number of saints who had this name. The etymological root of the name comes from the Latin for valens meaning strength or courage. The most popular Saint Valentine was believed to have been a bishop who was martyred under the persecution of the Roman Emperor Claudius II. There is a church named for him at Rome. After the Second Vatican Council a number of lesser known saints were removed from the liturgical calendar. They are still saints and we ask them to pray for us and our intentions. How Saint Valentine became associated with romantic love, boxes of candy and flowers is an interesting story. Since the feast day is in the middle of February people started to think about springtime and associated Saint Valentine’s Day with spring. This was referenced in letters written in the High Middle Ages that related birds mating and new life which came with Spring to the feast day of Saint Valentine. May we too be thankful for the gift of new life. May we thank God for the gift of life and love that we received from our mother and father. In this our 175th year as a community of faith in Queen Village may we celebrate the gift of New Life in Christ. Happy Saint Valentine’s Day everyone. Father Oliver FIRST RECOCILIATIO Tuesday, February 24 at 7:00 p.m. Pray for our children who will receive First Holy Communion this year. All are invited to the Service.

This final document is the preparatory document or the Lineamenta for the next Synod of Bishops in Rome. This Synod will take place from October 4 to 25, 2015, with the topic, The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and Contemporary World. Once again, as with the most recent Synod of Bishops, the Office of the Synod of Bishops invites a process of broad consultation among every component of the local Church, including academic institutions, organizations, lay movements and other ecclesial associations. The principal document for this broad consultation is Relatio Synodi or the Lineamenta which can be found in English in its complete form on the Vatican Website, http://www.vatican.va. The consultation requires a thoughtful reading and reflection on this document and a response to questions that accompany it. These questions, (copies available at entrance to church) are arranged according to the outline of the document and are preceded in some instances by a summary of its principal points. Responses to these questions are to be returned by Monday, March 9, 2015 to [email protected] or mail to the address on the hard copies. You can respond online by visiting http://archphila.org/synod2015/ synod2015.php.
