Saint Valentine is the name of several martyred saints of ancient Rome. The name “Valentine”, derived from valens (worthy, strong, powerful), was popular in Late Antiquity. Of the Saint Valentine whose feast is on February 14th, nothing is known except his name and that he was buried at the Via Flaminia north of Rome on February 14th. It is even uncertain whether the feast of that day celebrates only one saint or more saints of the same name. For this reason this liturgical commemoration was not kept in the Catholic calendar of saints for universal liturgical veneration as revised in 1969. But “Martyr Valentinus the Presbyter and those with him at Rome” remains in the list of saints proposed for veneration by all Catholics.

This weekend on my way home from a family day with the grandparents I stopped to take a few photos of a sunflower field near my home in Sussex County.  No fancy editing, just the raw images taken from the shoot.  Some were taken by my son, Frankie Jr., but I’m not sure which one’s are his. Hope you enjoy them.  If you do, please leave a comment.  I am dedicating this post to Stacey because she couldn’t find the photos on Facebook and asked for the link and I thought “Flower Power” would be too corny (even for me) to post.

Have a great day!
